A theoretical description is given for electronic properties of semiconductor quantum dots in a magnetic field. A two-electron model is applied for electrons in a cylindrical quantum dot with a parabolic confinement potential. The eigenvalue problem is solved by the variational method with the trial wave function proposed in the form of linear combination of S-type and P-type Gaussians. The energy levels of singlet and triplet states with arbitrary radial and magnetic quantum numbers have been calculated as a function of the applied magnetic field. The calculated cyclotron transition energies agree well with those measured for InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots. It is shown that the electron-electron interaction has a small influence on the transition energy.
