The discovery of planets in multistellar systems has become an interesting field for researchers. The dynamical stability and the formation process of such planets lead to questions on their origins and dynamical evolution. The existence of stellar systems with massive disks suggests that the planetary accretion process might have being similar to systems with a single star. In the present project we are interested on the study of the stability of these protoplanetary disks around binary stars and the process of planetary formation raised from them. (AU)
