## Description

Determining how the Hermanson's spatial dependent dielectric function affect the total energy of quantum dots.

## Files

## Steps to reproduce

Determine the total energy of GaAs-(Ga,Al)As cubic or spherical quantum dot when Harmanson's spatial dependent dielectric function has been taken into account. Compare the total energy when Bloch and atomic basis functions have been used. In this case, we compare atomic function when it has been considered to the first and then the second perturbation level.
