Title: Electronic structure of spheroidal fullerenes in a weak uniform magnetic field: A continuum field-theory model

Abstract

The effect of a weak uniform magnetic field on the electronic structure of slightly deformed fullerene molecules is studied within the continuum field-theory model. It is shown how the existing fine structure of the electronic energy spectrum due to spheroidal deformation is modified in the presence of a magnetic field. Exact analytical solutions for zero-energy modes are found.
