Title
Relativistic effects when many independent Fermions are confined in d dimensions
Author
Abstract
The study of the density of independent harmonically confined Fermions is of considerable current interest because of (a) quantum dots and (b) the experiments of DeMarco and Jin on some alkali metal vapours in magnetic traps. Our concern here is with relativistic effects, first in harmonically confined assemblies of electrons as in (a) above and secondly with a stronger type of Fermion confinement typified again by electrons but now in a quartic rather than quadratic potential. While our numerical illustrations are for dimensionalities d = 1 and 3, some analytical results are presented in d dimensions.
