We used a theory of thermo-hydrodynamics in quantum Hall system observed on a two-dimensional system in high magnetic fields at low temperatures, to investigate the electron temperature in the linear response regime. The variation of electron temperature exhibits an antisymmetric distribution of the incompressible strips. According to this result, we obtain effects of the electron temperature on the current density distribution using a Thomas-Fermi-Poisson approximation. We observe that incompressible strips change with increasing and/or decreasing the electron temperature with regard to the lattice temperature. DOI: 10.12693/APhysPolA.123.314
