Theory of magnetic-induction bifurcation in the Condon domain phase of a three-dimensional (3D) electron gas under high-magnetic field is presented. The results—the diamagnetic phase transition temperature and the induction bifurcation values—are in good agreement with nuclear magnetic resonance data in silver. The temperature dependence of the order parameter of the diamagnetic phase transition—the magnetization in each Condon domain—is obtained by a comparison of the theory with the experiment. The mean-field approach has been shown to lead to the universal behavior of an electron gas of 2D and 3D dimensionality.
