We derive expressions for the complex conductivity tensor of a homogeneous classical plasma in an external uniform magnetic field, in terms of electric field correlations, using the Kubo theory of transport phenomena. The main aim is to bring out explicitly the magnetic field dependence of the conductivity tensor. Exact relations between the conductivity tensor in the presence of the magnetic field and the same tensor in the absence of the magnetic field have been obtained.
