We investigate the radiative heat transfer in systems of magneto-optical nanoparticles. The resonance of surface modes due to an external magnetic field results in an anisotropic optical response of these nanoparticles. Using the many-body radiative heat transfer theory, we have investigated the influence of the magnitude and the direction of an external magnetic field on the steady state temperature of system of magneto-optical nanoparticles. Moreover, the influence of configuration symmetry breaking (with change of nanoparticles size) on the net heat exchange and temperatures are investigated in a three body system and the results are compared to that of symmetrical system.
