Abstract

Double Beta Decay (ββ) is a rare transition between two isobars, involving the change of the nuclear charge Z by two units. In Nature we have several even- even nuclei for which this is the only allowed decay mode. Several theoretical speculations point toward a mass generation mechanism that imply a Majorana character of neutrinos and that indicates in the 0ν-DBD process the unique tool with a discovery potential.This thesis is subdivided in two parts: the first three chapters should give an idea of the CUORICINO, from its theoretical context up to the evaluation of the 0ν-DBD limit, while the last chapters are a description of my contributions to the analysis of this experiments.
