A first-principles study of the collective oscillation spectrum of a strongly correlated one-component plasma in a strong magnetic field is presented. The spectrum consists of six fundamental modes that are found to be in good agreement with results from the quasilocalized charge approximation. At high frequencies, additional modes are observed that include Bernstein-type oscillations and their transverse counterparts, which are of importance for the high-frequency optical and transport properties of these plasmas.
