A major current emphasis on the study of neutrino physics of elementary particles is the application of the oscillations of these particles from the Standard Model of Physics. The big question that remains open is how the Mass Hierarchy is structured between the three mass neutrinos v1, v2 and v3, which make their masses together an unknown. Along with this problem, there is the violation of Charge-Parity (CP) in the neutrino sector that can be directly linked to the matter / anti-matter asymmetry of the Universe. In this scientific initiation project, it will be studied how the detection and the results obtained from the neutrino oscillation in the DUNE Experiment can better indicate and clarify these phenomena of CP violation and the Mass Hierarchy.
