Time-dependent approaches for computation of quantum mechanical problems are presented for few-body models. Quantum tunneling in nuclear fusion is described using a time-dependent wave packet. Breakup and transfer reactions of 11Be are visualized in the time-dependent manner. We also present a method to calculate strength functions using the time-dependent Schrödinger equation. E1 strength distributions of halo nuclei, 11Be and 6He, are presented.
