Abstract

Blasone and Vitiello showed that for two or three flavours the mass and flavour vacua for fermion mixing define inequivalent representations of the anticommutation relations. This paper presents a short proof that this holds for any number of flavours and momentum-dependent mixing, and also extends the Blasone-Vitiello formulae for the oscillations.
