In this work we have investigated the influence of topology in quantum dynamics in two-dimensional quantum dots in a conic surface. We analyze the quantum dynamics of particles in this dot when submitted to an external magnetic field and Aharonov-Bohm flux in the dot center. We obtain the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions exactly. We investigated the influence of geometry and topology on the magnetization, the Fermi energy, and the persistent currents. It is shown that the curvature of the space changes the oscillation pattern of those physical quantities.
