There are two types of nonspreading localized wave forms representing a stable, individual, indivisible, single quantum particle with interference properties endowed with classical (hidden) parameters, i.e. initial positions and velocity: coherent states and wavelets. The first is exactly known for oscillator, the second for free particles. Their relation and their construction is discussed from a new unified point of view. We then extend this contraction to the Coulomb problem, where with the introduction of a new time variable T, nonspreading states are obtained. (author). 10 refs.
