The title of this chapter is somewhat imprecise. In addition to the intrinsic magnetic properties of lead chalcogenides, we shall also consider the magneto-optical effects, magnetoplasma phenomena, cyclotron resonance, tunnel effect in magnetic fields, and oscillations of the magnetoresistance and ultrasound absorption in magnetic fields. These effects are associated with the quantization of electron states in a magnetic field or, when the quasi-classical approach is used, with the bending of the electron orbits. The galvanomagnetic and thermomagnetic effects in nonquantizing magnetic fields have already been discussed (cf. §§3.2 and 4.1).
