Over the last three decades, a vast amount of theoretical and experimental investigations has been devoted to the understanding of the electronic state of solids in the presence of an external magnetic field. The magneto-spectroscopy of excitons, in particular, has often been used to provide precise information on various fundamental parameters, such as effective masses, g-values, k-linear terms, exchange interaction, etc.1 It has also become very clear that, to gain such information, realistic exciton models and their accurate solutions in the presence of an external magnetic field are necessary.2
