In this talk, I will discuss our studies on various many-body phenomena in one-dimensional Bosonic mixtures. I will focus on the two new orders that can appear in the mixtures, the counterflow and paired superfluids, in addition to single component superfluid and Mott Insulator phases. I will discuss how the two orders leads to interesting static and dynamical properties. I will also discuss the numerical method, the time evolving block decimation (TEBD) method, that enables us to consider the effect of the trapping potential and simulate non-equilibrium dynamics of the many-body system under various perturbations.
