This chapter is intended to give an overview on the fundamental concepts behind the processes of magma mixing, broadly considering interactions between different magmas. The effort of the authors has been to select, from the ample literature, the key concepts to provide the best understanding of the physical and chemical processes occurring during magma mixing. In particular, the review is structured in: 1) an historical perspective, recounting the discovery and evolution of our understanding of magma mixing through time; 2) definitions of mixing and mingling and their major geological evidence from the field; 3) scaling rules and numerical modelling, with...
