Title: The construction of Dirac wave packets for a fermionic particle non-minimally coupling with an external magnetic field
Author: Bernardini, AE
Abstract: We shall proceed with the construction of normalizable Dirac wave packets for fermionic particles (neutrinos) with dynamics governed by a "modified" Dirac equation with a non-minimal coupling with an external magnetic field. We are not only interested on the analytic solutions of the "modified" Dirac wave equation but also on the construction of Dirac wave packets which can be used for describing the dynamics of some observable physical quantities which are relevant in the context of the quantum oscillation phenomena. To conclude, we discuss qualitatively the applicability of this formal construction in the treatment of chiral (and flavor) oscillations in the theoretical context of neutrino physics.
