Neutrinos are described in the Standard Model (SM) by three left-handed fermion fields, one for each fermion generation. In the SM, the masses of the fermions arise as a Yukawa interaction between the right-handed and the left-handed fermion fields, and the Higgs doublet. Because of the lack of a right-handed field for neutrinos, these fermions are massless within the SM. Experiments measuring the flavor composition of neutrinos have established the oscillation of the flavor along with its path. This oscillation can be explained in the scenario of mixing between neutrino flavor and neutrino mass states. This talk is devoted to the study of the neutrino flavor oscillations within different mixing models. In particular, it is focused into the physics reach by the new generation of neutrino telescopes, like IceCube and DeepCore.
