The problem of transient four-wave mixing with noncoincident optical pulses is analyzed using the formalism of the time evolution and the density matrix operators. The results are relevant to problems involving real time holography and wave conjugation. The treatment establishes a bridge between the conventional formalisms of nonlinear optics and of photon echoes.
