Spontaneous decrease of degrees of freedom using magnetism?

  1. Nov 9, 2011 #1
    What happens then if one has applied a static magnetic field to a heat conductor? Could the temperature increase as a result of reducing the degrees of freedom, increasing the ability for heat to be transferred from that body to others?
