Abstract

We shortly review the quantum field theory formulation of neutrino mixing and oscillations extensively studied in literature. The canonical formalism requires a non-trivial condensate structure of the flavor vacuum, which appears to be an entangled coherent state. Within such a frame, mixing is described as resulting from the interaction of the neutrino field with a non-abelian gauge field.
