The main point of this project is the study of the relevance of neutrinos oscillation in the understanding of CP violation and their relation with asymmetry between matter and antimatter in the Universe. The oscillation consists in the conversion between the three possible neutrino flavors, evidencing the CP violation. Such violation is one of Sakharov's conditions for production of the asymmetry between matter and antimatter, observed in the current Universe. The potential of DUNE Experiment in investigate the CP violation is going to be analyzed in this research. This project was prepared by the student under the supervision of the responsible supervisor. (AU)
