This monograph offers a rigorous mathematical treatment of the scattering theory of quantum N-particle systems in an external constant magnetic field. In particular, it addresses the question of asymptotic completeness, a classification of all possible trajectories of such systems according to their asymptotic behavior. The book adopts the so-called time-dependent approach to scattering theory, which relies on a direct study of the Schrodinger unitary group for large times. The modern methods of spectral and scattering theory introduced in the 1980s and 1990s, including the Mourre theory of positive commutators, propagation estimates, and geometrical techniques, are presented and heavily used. Additionally, new methods were developed by the authors in order to deal with the (much less understood) phenomena due to the presence of the magnetic field.The book is a good starting point for graduate students and researchers in mathematical physics who wish to move into this area of research. It includes expository material, research work previously available only in the form of journal articles, as well as some new unpublished results. The treatment of the subject is comprehensive and largely self-contained, and the text is carefully written with attention to detail.
