In this paper we study the heat trace of the magnetic Schrödinger operator (Equation Presented) on the hyperbolic plane ℍ = {z = (x, y)|x ε ℝ, y > 0}. Here a = (a1, a2) is a magnetic vector potential and V is a scalar potential on ℍ. Under some growth conditions on a and V at infinity, we derive an upper bound of the difference Tr e-tHV (0) - Tr e-tHV (a) as t → +0. As a byproduct, we obtain the asymptotic distribution of eigenvalues less than λ as λ → +∞ when V has exponential growth at infinity (with respect to the Riemannian distance on ℍ). Moreover, we obtain the asymptotics of the logarithm of the eigenvalue counting function as λ → +∞ when V has polynomial growth at infinity. In both cases we assume that a is weaker than V in an appropriate sense.
