Unconventional high temperature superconductivity as well as three-dimensional bulk Dirac cone quantum states arising from the unique d-orbital topology have comprised an intriguing research area in physics. Here we apply a special analytical approach using a mobility spectrum, in which the carrier number is conveniently described as a function of mobility without any hypothesis, both on the types and the numbers of carriers, for the interpretations of longitudinal and transverse electric transport of high quality single crystal Ba(FeAs)2 in a wide range of magnetic fields. We show that the majority carriers are accommodated in large parabolic hole and electron pockets with very different topology as well as remarkably different mobility spectra, whereas the minority carriers reside in Dirac quantum states with the largest mobility as high as 70,000 cm2(Vs). The deduced mobility spectra are discussed and compared to the reported sophisticated first principle band calculations.
