Quantum information is a multidisciplinary field of research whereby

some of the basic concepts of Quantum Physics are exploited in order to process

and transmit information in novel ways. During the last years, this

field of research has experienced a very impressive progress, both in

theory and experiment. In particular, today it is possible to manipulate

single and few quantum systems (like atoms, ions, electrons or photons),

in order to test the basic principles lying behind quantum information

sience. This has triggered new ideas about possible applications in this

scenario. At the same time, some of the mathematical tools and concepts

originally developed in the context of quantum information have found applications in

other areas of Physics. In particular, both the physical systems available

today, as well as those new theoretical tools, offer us completely

new ways to investigate many-body quantum problems that appear in other

branches of science and, in particular, simulate the behavior of certain

condensed matter systems which cannot be described with any

other available method. In this talk I will review this new field of

research, and mention its applications as well as it major challenges.
