In this work, we have developed our previous work which combines the genetic algorithm, Monte Carlo and variational methods (GMV). Some new facts about the application of the method are revealed. In order to illustrate the Fmethod, the diamagnetic shift and the effect of the barrier thickness on the exciton binding energy of the GaAs0.7Sb0.3/GaAs single quantum well (GW) are described.


Key words: Monte Carlo integration scheme, genetic algorithm, variational method, hybrid method, quantum well, diamagnetic shift.
