    Abstract

    The viscous stress tensor and the heat flux tensor of a collisionless plasma immersed in a strong magnetic field are calculated by Grad's moments method. No contradiction is found between the expressions of the viscous stress tensor obtained earlier by A. Macmahon and by A. Simon and W. Thompson. It is shown that in the approximation considered the "longitudinal" heat flux is absent.
