Researchers calculated the electronic band energy of the carbon nanotube with some special form of crystalline potentials which yield to inaccurate equations. We thus modified the orthogonalized-plane-wave and tight binding methods. These methods are employed to introduce a matrix of carbon nanotube band energy.
