Consider a free electron gas in a confining potential and a magnetic field in
arbitrary dimensions. If this gas is in thermal equilibrium with a reservoir at
temperature $T >0$, one can study its orbital magnetic response (omitting the spin).
One defines a conveniently ``smeared out'' magnetization $M$, and the corresponding
magnetic susceptibility $\chi$, which will be analyzed from a semiclassical point of view,
namely when $\hbar$ (the Planck constant) is small compared to classical actions
characterizing the system. Then various regimes of temperature $T$ are studied where
$M$ and $\chi$ can be obtained in the form of suitable asymptotic $\hbar$expansions.
In particular when $T$ is of the order of $\hbar$, oscillations ``\`a la de
Haasvan Alphen'' appear, that can be linked to the classical periodic orbits of the
electronic motion.
