The aim of the NEMO collaboration is to investigate neutrinoless double-beta decay. This research is one of the principal topics in neutrino physics, which is a subfield of particle physics with cosmological and astrophysical implications.

Double-beta decay experiments can play a particularly interesting role in providing the answers to questions on the nature of the neutrino. Of paramount importance is the identification of the neutrino as a Dirac particle or Majorana particle.

Here we propose an simple overview of our present understanding of the subatomic world: the Standard Model of Particle Physics. Then we focus particularly on the neutrino. Finally we present some generalities about double beta decay and associated experiments.
