The 3 and 4-electron states of a gated semiconducting carbon nanotube quantum dot are calculated by exact diagonalisation of a modified effective mass Hamiltonian. A typical nanotube quantum dot is examined and the few-electron states are Wigner molecule-like. The exact diagonalisation method and the rate of convergence of the calculation are discussed.
