In non-equilibrium thermodynamics, the generalized equations of electric conductivity and heat conductivity are well known. They describe the response of the conductive medium to the effect of the drift fields in it and the magnetic field. These equations include phenomenological tensors and coefficients that determine the whole set of important kinetic properties of conducting crystals. Therefore, in order to find out the nature of crystal properties, it is necessary to clarify the nature of the set of kinetic tensors and the coefficients included in the general equilibrium of electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity. In this article, we will calculate the whole complex of these important quantities for isotropic crystals by statistical physics methods for general conditions of observation. And show the effect of spatial quantization on kinetic properties in 2D and 1D crystals.
