Abstract: We describe the Kondo resonance in quantum dots employing the atomic model. We calculate approximate Green's functions of the impurity Anderson model employing the exact solution of the system with a conduction band with zero width, and we use the completeness condition to choose the position of that band. At low temperatures, there are two solutions close to the chemical potential µ, satisfying this condition, and we choose the one with minimum Helmholtz free energy, considering that this corresponds to the Kondo solution. At high temperatures, this solution no longer exist, corresponding to the disappearance of the Kondo peak. We present curves of density of states that characterize the Kondo peak structure problem. As a simple application we calculate the conductance of a side-coupled quantum dot and we obtain good agreement with recent experimental results.
