Abstract We predict the existence in hydrogen of stable nonspreading Rydberg wave packet states that have no classical counterparts. We show their time-dependent creation from circular Rydberg states in numerical simulations. These states are both angularly and radially localized exactly in antiphase from the corresponding nonspreading (so-called Trojan) packet position and are stabilized by quantum interference. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}
