Title: Wave packets and quantum oscillations
Author: De Leo, S

Abstract: We give a detailed analysis of the oscillation formula within the context of the wave packet formalism. Particular attention is made to insure flavor eigenstate creation in the physical cases (Deltap not equivalent to 0). This requirement imposes nononinstantaneous particle creation in all frames. It is shown that the standard formula is not only exact when the mass wave packets have the same velocity, but it is a good approximation when minimal slippage occurs. For more general situations the oscillation formula contains additional arbitrary parameters, which allows for the unknown form of the wave packet envelope.
