    We theoretically study the spatial and temporal fluctuation of two electrons confined in a semiconductor quantum dot (QD). Eigenstates are determined by the resonating unrestricted Hartree-Fock (res-UHF) approach in order to take into account the electron correlation via the configuration interaction (CI). The time-dependent (TD) wave function is, then, expanded by the UHF solutions, and the CI treatment is combined with the TD Schrödinger equation (TD-CI). The present TD-CI approach has an advantage to study how the electron correlation fluctuates the multi-electron state spatially and/or temporally through the multi-reference description of many-electron wave functions.
