In previous articles, a magnetic pseudodi erential calculus and a family of C*-algebras associated with twisted dynamical systems were introduced and the connections between them have been established. We extend this formalism to symbol classes of Hörmander type with an x-behavior modeled by an abelian C*-algebra. Some of these classes generate C*-algebras associated with the twisted dynamical system.We show the relevance of these classes to the spectral analysis of pseudodi erential operators with anisotropic symbols and magnetic elds.

Keywords: magnetic field, pseudodifferential operator, C*-algebra, affiliation, essential spectrum, symbol class, twisted crossed-product, Ψ*-algebra
