Nature of problem:
Electronic structure of N-electrons confined in a quantum dot.

Solution method:
The Hartree-Fock self-consistent field method is applied to the physical problem. The Rayleigh-Ritz variational method is applied to solve the Hartree-Fock equations, using a mixture of analytic and numeric computational techniques.

Restricted to circularly symmetric quantum dots; limited matrix (expansion) sizes.

Unusual features:
A simple input structure. Analytic reduction of direct and exchange integrals speeds up computation and improves accuracy.
