We draw attention to the similarity between mutually related kinetic material phenomena that are odd in magnetic field and produce an electric current or heat flow perpendicular 1) to the magnetic field, 2) to the electric field, or to the temperature gradient. These phenomena include the Hall effect, the Righi-—Leduc effect in nonmagnetic metals, the anomalous Hall effect in magnets, the odd Senftleben—Beenakker effect in molecular gases and the phonon Hall effect in dielectrics. While these phenomena have much in common in terms of geometry, their formation mechanisms — dynamic and dissipative — are different. However, in all the cases the flow perpendicular to the magnetic field arises from the spin-orbit interaction of carriers with magnetic moments.
