A Dissertation on open quantum systems, containing a general review of the current standing of the field, in particular regarding systems interacting with Gaussian environments, as well as original analytical and numerical results. The problem of the impact of a variation in the environmental properties on the reduced dynamics of an open system is investigated analytically, and a new computational technique for the simulation of non-perturbative, non-Markovian open quantum system dynamics based on devising error-certified effective environments is presented.
