Galvanomagnetic phenomena in metals in strong magnetic fields, associated with the Fermi surface geometry are considered. Using three-dimensional topology theorems, a full classification of all possibilities is made. For non-closed general-position electron orbits, special topological characteristics are introduced for the conductivity tensor at B \rightarrow 0.
