This is an abstract for a presentation given at the
Ninth Foresight Conference on Molecular Nanotechnology.
There will be a link from here to the full article when it is available on the web.


A report on the study of collective degrees of freedom in quantum dots using propagator methods. Propagator methods will permit improvements in the characterization of quantum effects observed in nanostructures and the inclusion of collective processes and excitations. These methods are used in the development of computer models of macroscopically observable properties such as luminosity.
