The proposed semiclassical theory predicts two types of oscillations in the flow of current injected from a point source near a ballistic p-n junction in graphene in a strong magnetic field. One originates from the classical effect of bunching of cyclotron orbits of electrons passing back and forth across the p-n interface, which displays a pronounced dependence on the commensurability between the cyclotron radii in the n and p regions. The other effect is caused by the interference of monochromatic electron waves in p-n junctions with equal carrier densities on the two sides and it consists of magneto-oscillations in the current transmission through the interface with periodicity similar to Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations.
