I present a brief review of recent theoretical and experimental achievements concerning the kinetics of spin‐polarized quantum systems. Recently serious attention has been paid to generalized and more accurate schemes of derivation of kinetic equations for such systems. Within different approaches the exchange and non‐local effects, virial corrections and diagrammatic methods were studied in detail. The first calculations of transverse relaxation time responsible for attenuation of spin waves have also been performed. The new experimental results on transport phenomena are in reasonable agreement with theoretical predictions. The future studies of spin‐polarized quantum systems are hampered by the lack of adequate and concise description of the particle’s interaction with the walls such as boundary slip effects and magnetic relaxation. The latter is especially interesting and important at low temperatures because of possible magnetic ordering in the boundary 3He layers.
