We study the coherent nonlinear optical response of two-dimensional excitons in a perpevthcular magnetic field. The transition from two-dimensional behaviour in the low-field limit to quasi-zerodimensional behaviour in high fields is investigated and pronounced manybody effects which are highly field dependent are found. Differential pump-probe spectra are calculated for various excitation conditions. It is shown that cyclotron motion can be time resolved with ultrashort optical pulses.
