This chapter discusses the theory of neutrino oscillations in vacuums and discusses in detail plane-wave approximation (flavour neutrino states, universality of the oscillation phase, Lorentz invariance, and production and detection rates), wave-packet treatment, size of neutrino wave packets (pion decay and muon decay), and several questions regarding the subject. These questions include: do charged leptons oscillate? Is the standard oscillation phase wrong by a factor of 2? What are the energies and momenta of massive neutrinos? Are wave packets necessary?

Keywords:   neutrino oscillations in vacuum, plane-wave approximation, flavour neutrino states, Lorentz invariance, wave-packet treatment
