This thesis study the (2,n)-torus knots, uses the Khovanov Homology and Reidemeister Torsion. We show the study made to the Khovanov Homology Groups H^r, for r = -n, -n+1, -1; 0. These are isomorphics to either Z, Z_2 or some direct sum of copies of them. Finally, we applied the Redeimeister Torsion to the chain subcomplexes with polynomial degree of -3n, -3n + 2 and 2 - n using the same class of knots.
