We study the dynamics of an electron wave packet in a one-dimensional Anderson model with a nonrandom hopping falling off as some power α of the distance between sites. We have found that the larger the hopping range, the more extended the wave packet as time evolves. When the disorder is increased, the wave packet tends to be more and more localized in a finite region of the lattice. For a low degree of disorder, the exponent α=1.5 indicates the onset for fast propagation of the wave packet. This value is in good agreement with previous results obtained by diagonalizing the systems Hamiltonian. The inclusion of a dc electric field introduces the effect of dynamical localization, i.e., the acting field produces the localization of the wave packet in a definite region of the lattice, irrespective of the degree of disorder and hopping range. By appropriately tuning the electric field we obtained the Bloch oscillations of the wave packet.
