We discuss the explicit analytical solution for the motion of a charged quantum particle in a homogeneous magnetic field under the influence of a series of delta -kicks of a cyclotron frequency. Transition probabilities between the Landau levels due to kicking are expressed in terms of the Jacobi polynomials whose arguments contain the reflection coefficient from a series of delta -walls.
