The equation of motion for an electron near the bottom of the conduction band is:
$$m_{eff} \frac{d\mathbf{v}}{dt} = -e\mathbf{v} \times \mathbf{B}$$
and when replacing we get two coupled equations:
$$\dot{k_x} = \frac{e \hbar}{m_eff}B k_y$$
$$\dot{k_y} = -\frac{e \hbar}{m_eff}B k_x$$
$$\dot{k_x} = \frac{e}{m_eff}B k_y$$
$$\dot{k_y} = -\frac{e}{m_eff}B k_x$$
The solution to this equation is circular motion of cyclotron frequency of $\omega_c = \frac{eB}{m_{eff}}$, where the Lorentz
force is perpendicular to $\nabla_\mathbf{k} E$.
