Abstract: The three-dimensional Schrödinger operator $H$ with constant magnetic field of strength $b>0$ is considered under the assumption that the electric potential $V \in L^1({{\mathbb R}^3})$ admits certain power-like estimates at infinity. The asymptotic behavior as $b \rightarrow \infty$ of the spectral shift function $\xi(E;H,H_0)$ is studied for the pair of operators $(H,H_0)$ at the energies $E = {\mathcal{E}} b + \lambda$, ${\mathcal{E}}>0$ and $\lambda \in{\mathbb R}$ being fixed. Two asymptotic regimes are distinguished. In the first regime, called asymptotics far from the Landau levels, we pick ${\mathcal{E}}/2 \not \in {\mathbb Z}_+$ and $\lambda \in {\mathbb R}$; then the main term is always of order $\sqrt{b}$, and is independent of $\lambda$. In the second asymptotic regime, called asymptotics near a Landau level, we choose ${\mathcal{E}}= 2 q_0$, $q_0 \in {\mathbb Z}_+$, and $\lambda \neq 0$; in this case the leading term of the SSF could be of order $b$ or $\sqrt{b}$ for different $\lambda$.
