    We present a decay formula for photoluminescence of a single quantum dot. We apply the formula to time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) measurements for a single InAs/GaAs quantum dot. The formula works very well for the PL decays of excitons and biexcitons in the system. The physical basis of...
