Abstract The conduction-electron diamagnetism was calculated for the three- dimensional band structure of graphite. The magnetic energy levels are found and the susceptibility calculated by analytically carrying out the free energy sum. Agreement with experiment is found for values of the band parameters nearly equal to those which give agreement with the de Haas-van Alphen effect and other phenomena. The value of gamma /sub 0/ is found to be 2.8 plus or minus 0.1 ev. The results indicate the gamma /sub 1/ is about 0.27 ev and DELTA is about 0.025. The other band parameters do not have an important influence upon the value of the susceptibility. The relation to the general treatments of conduction-electron diamagnetism is also discussed. (auth)
