The quantum information theory is based in two fundamental resources associated to quantum systems - existence of coherent superposition of states and entangled states involving two or more subsystems. In this project we presented a proposal to study typical processes of continuous variables systems used or investigated for the implementation of a quantum information processing in phase space. Besides the visualization of several states and processes, the phase space representation allow us solution's methods for the system dynamics. This work has two central objectives and they are focused in continuous variables gaussian states: the first seeks to develop entanglement's aspects for gaussians bipartite systems unifying the developed methods by candidate in his PhD with the methods of the supervisor's group; the second seeks fundamental aspects in the description of quantum systems evolution described by Wigner-Moyal equation. In this extent, we intended to develop a theory (that goes besides the mean field theory given by Gross-Pitaevskii equation) for the evolution Bose-Einstein condensates in terms of quasi-probability functions, as well as to solve inherent questions to the legitimacy of probability distributions involved in the Wigner-Moyal equation.
