We formulate a many-body model of transport in open quantum dots, which is based upon the idea of an enhanced electron–electron interaction in the vicinity of a quasibound state. Our studies suggest that the effect of including this peaked interaction is to increase the amplitude of the conductance fluctuations, beyond the value expected from a single-particle treatment. While the role of interactions in transport through open dots has attracted little theoretical attention, our results demonstrate the presence of interaction-induced corrections to the transport in these structures.
