abstract = "The electronic properties of a three-dimensional quantum dot array model formed by vertically aligned quantum dots are investigated numerically. The governing equation of the model is the Schr{\"o}dinger equation which is incorporated with a nonparabolic effective mass approximation that depends on the energy and position. Several interior eigenvalues must be identified from a large-scale high-order matrix polynomial. In this paper, we propose numerical schemes that are capable of simulating the quantum dot array model with up to 12 quantum dots on a personal computer. The numerical experiments also lead to novel findings in the electronic properties of the quantum dot array model.",
