The main subject of this project is the neutrino oscillation as a tool to understand the asymmetry of matter and antimatter seen today in the Universe. This asymmetry is dictated by the conditions of Sakharov, with neutrinos fitting the condition that it has to exist violation of charge and parity (CP). The neutrino oscillation is a phenomenon in which a neutrino with a leptonic flavor can be detected posteriorly in a different flavor, and in this process there is the theoretical possibility of having violation of charge and parity. The laboratory DUNE (Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment) has potencial to detection of neutrino oscillations. Our goal here is to deepen the study of neutrino oscillations with emphasis in the Sakharov condition of violation of CP in order to study and comprehend the asymmetry of matter and antimatter of the Universe. This abstract was elaborated by the student under the orientation of the superviser. (AU)
