    The ground state energy of an exciton and biexciton states, in a GaN/AlxGa1−xN quantumdisk are investigated by the variation method, within envelope function and effective mass approximations.Exciton and biexciton binding energy, and the dipole moments related to the transition between ground,exciton and biexciton states, are calculated as a function of quantum disk geometry. The optical nonlinearityvia the exciton and biexciton states is studied on the basis of a three level model through the density matrixformalism. The behavior of different terms of third order susceptibility χ(3), are studied around resonancefrequencies and for different geometries of disk. The effect of values of the decay rates on χ(3) are studied.It is found that these values have remarkable effect on the second term of, χ(3).
