In this work we have investigated the exciton reflectance spectra of a high quality heterostructure with a GaAs/AlGaAs quantum well in a transverse magnetic field (Voigt geometry). It has been shown that application of the magnetic field leads to a decrease of energy distance between spectral features related to the excitonlike polariton modes. This effect has been treated as the magneto-induced increase of the exciton mass. We have shown that the hydrogenlike and diamagnetic exciton models are insufficient to describe the exciton behavior in the intermediate magnetic fields studied. Considering the symmetry of the problem, we have developed a phenomenological model which adequately describes the experimental data.
