We have investigated pumping in quantum dots from the perspective of non-Abelian (matrix) Berry phases by solving the time-dependent Schrödinger equation exactly for adiabatic changes. Our results demonstrate that a pumped charge is related to the presence of a finite matrix Berry phase. When consecutive adiabatic cycles are performed the pumped charge of each cycle is different from that of the previous ones.
