Abstract

Composite fermion wave functions projected onto the lowest Landau level, provide an accurate description of two-dimensional quantum dots in the limit of strong magnetic fields. We show that the range of validity of these wave functions can be extended to smaller magnetic fields by incorporating Landau level mixing effects with the variational and diffusion Monte Carlo methods. We apply our method to 14 and 15 electron systems to study ground state properties in the fractional quantum Hall regime. Landau level mixing is found to be important for a quantitative understanding of experimental addition spectra.
