The paper reports on theoretical study of electron states for a quantum dot in a graphene monolayer. Discrete energy spectrum of quasiparticles inside the quantum dot is found. Energy levels and corresponding quasiparticle resonant wave functions are obtained, which allow calculating the local density of states inside the quantum dot. Some experimental results recently released are referred.
