The study of quantum mechanics has greatly broadened since its inception in the early twentieth century. Recent research has focused on the emergence of thermalization in quantum many-body systems. In this thesis I will demonstrate the approach to typicalitythe notion that for specific sets of objects, most of the objects share a common property-in a single, many-body spins chain of spin half particles. This notion of typicality is new. But it serves as a good explanation for the emergence of thermalization.
