The solution of Boltzmann equation for plasma in magnetic field, with arbitrarily degenerate electrons and non-degenerate nuclei, is obtained by Chapman-Enskog method. Fully ionized plasma is considered. The tensor of the heat conductivity coefficients in non-quantized magnetic field is calculated. For strongly degenerate plasma the asymptotic analytic formulas are obtained. The Lorentz approximation, with neglecting of electron-electron encounters, is asymptotically exact for strongly degenerate plasma.
For strongly degenerate electrons we obtain an asymptotically exact analytical solution for the heat conductivity tensor in presence of a magnetic field. This solution has considerably more complicated dependence on the magnetic field than those in previous publications, and gives several times smaller relative value of a thermal conductivity across the magnetic field at $\omega\tau\gtrsim 0.8$.
