Abstract. Under certain simplifying conditions
we detect monotonicity properties of the groundstate energy and the
canonicalequilibrium density matrix
of a spinless charged particle in the Euclidean plane
subject to a perpendicular, possibly inhomogeneous magnetic field
and an additional scalar potential.
Firstly, we point out a simple condition warranting that
the groundstate energy does not decrease when the magnetic field
and/or the potential is increased pointwise.
Secondly, we consider the case in which both the magnetic field and
the potential are constant along one direction in the plane
and give a genuine pathintegral argument
for corresponding monotonicities of the densitymatrix diagonal
and the absolute value of certain offdiagonals.
Our results complement to some degree results of
M. Loss and B. Thaller [Commun. Math. Phys. 186 (1997) 95] and
L. Erdos [J. Math. Phys. 38 (1997) 1289].
