Abstract

We present calculations of conductance, G, as a function of inverse temperature, 1/T, for a quantum dot array with disorder, a clean quantum dot enclosed by soft boundaries and a simple two resonance model. The behavior in each case is qualitatively similar, with G appearing to increase exponentially provided one starts at a minimum. Unlike some recent experimental studies, we do not see any logarithmic behavior at low temperatures.
