Atomic gases cooled to Nanokelvin temperatures are a new exciting tool to
study a broad range of quantum phenomena. In particular, an outstanding and rapid control over the fundamental parameters, such as interaction strength, spin composition, and dimensionality allows to realize and observe many different situations far from equilibrium. In my talk, I will address the question of the dynamics of ultracold gases after an external change of parameters and the  influence of a coupling to an environment. I will present results obtained by a variety of theoretical methods including MPS based algorithms.
