International audience; The widespread idea that spindensity functional theory is based upon the extension of the HohenbergKohn theorem to weak magnetic fields is contested. First, it is assumed that only the term linear in magnetic field can be kept in the Hamiltonian. Second, once this is done, two problems arise i) not only the spindependent, but also the orbitaldependent term should be taken care of, and ii) the latter produces eigenvalues that are not bounded from below, thus invalidating the proof of the HohenbergKohn theorem.
