What is a field?

It's an operator-valued distribution.

If you want to read about it, I recommend Streater and Wightman.

Edit: after seeing Teuton's response, I should clarify that I'm talking about a quantum field, not a generic field. There are also people who define quantum fields in Teutonic language :o
