Time-reversal symmetry for systems in a constant external magnetic field

The time-reversal properties of charged systems in a constant external magnetic field are reconsidered in this paper. We show that the evolution equations of the system are invariant under a new symmetry operation that implies a new signature property for time-correlation functions under time reversal. We then show how these findings can be combined with a previously identified symmetry to determine, for example, null components of the correlation functions of velocities and currents and of the associated transport coefficients. These theoretical predictions are illustrated by molecular dynamics simulations of superionic AgI.
