The Model of Neutrino Vacuum Flavour Oscillations and Quantum Mechanics


It is shown that the model of vacuum flavour oscillations is in disagreement with quantum mechanics theorems and postulates. Features of the model are analyzed. It is noted that apart from the number of mixed mass states neutrino oscillations is forbidden by Fock-Krylov theorem. A possible reason of oscillation model inadequacy is discussed.
