The discovery of neutrino oscillation phenomenon (implying non-zero mass), and the expected emergence of new physical phenomena at high energies become relevant to the study of so-called extensions of the Standard Model of Elementary Particles (Standard Model - SM). These extensions generate new predictions at high energies, as the appearance of new particles, but reproduce the SM at low energies.We will study the extension of the SM based on the symmetry group SU(3)(C) x SU(3)(L) x U(1)(X), called 3-3-1 for short. The study of this model in its three major variants, reveals the emergence of a new physics at high energies. Its analysis is interesting from a theoretical point of view, to address issues like violation of lepton number and gives an answer to the so-called generation problem. It is also interesting from the phenomenological point of view, since some of its predictions could, in principle, be verified in the near future, in accelerators like the LHC. (AU)
