Abstract : From the generalized Ohm's law with certain assumptions concerning the nature of the problems under consideration we obtain one vector equation describing the change in the magnetic field, an equation not depending on the equations of mechanics. IF we consider the parameters of the problem as not depending on one of the coordinates then this equation reduces to a system of two scalar equations. The properties of certain particular solutions of this system are indicated. For the case of small currents and large external magnetic fields, when in the first approximation it is possible to neglect induced fields, the solution of the system obtained can be sought in terms of total current flowing in the system, and the external field. An example to consider is the problem of the effect of anisotropic conductivity on the flow of gas in a channel in crossed electric and magnetic fields. (Author)
