We present a more general form of the Schrödinger equation in curved space by introducing the magnetic fields. Further, we solve the non-relativistic wave equation with the radial scalar power potential (RSPP) under the influence of magnetic and Aharonov-Bohm (AB) flux fields by using the curvilinear coordinates system in such space. With this requirement, the energy spectrum and the corresponding wave functions have been calculated by means of the series method. Our analytical results are compared with other results and found to be in a good agreement. Furthermore, the main thermodynamic functions, such as the free energy, the mean energy, the entropy, the specific heat, the persistent currents and the magnetization, have been calculated by using the characteristic function. Some plots of the numerical results of the thermodynamic quantities are shown. Finally, we discuss our results.
