Exact diagonalization calculations in the Haldane spherical geometry are carried out for the three-body Coulomb problem in a quasi-two-dimensional quantum well, in the presence of perpendicular magnetic field. Simultaneous inclusion of several Landau levels and quantum well subbands in the configuration-interaction basis allowed for quantitative description of the coupling between the in-plane dynamics (governed by interplay of cyclotron quantization and Coulomb interactions) and single-particle excitations in the normal direction. The energy spectra of negative and positive trions are compared in symmetric and asymmetric wells with realistic widths and carrier concentrations. Effects of nearby impurities are also studied.
