Abstract : Certain questions related to the calculation of the spatial distribution of the electric current in a conducting medium moving through a channel in the presence of a magnetic field are treated. The necessity of formulating three-dimensional problems arose as a result of the impossibility of studying within the framework of one-dimensional theory such phenomena as, for example, the entry of an electrically conducting medium into a magnetic field and the effect of inhomogeneity of the boundary conditions on the perimeter of the cross section and along the channel. Three- dimensional problems must also be considered when studying the influence of the Hall effect. (Author)
