In this thesis we focus on the problem of entanglement in an important class of states, called X-states, that we will introduce. Our study led us to an algebraic formula for the value of multipartite entanglement for X-states. We will take advantage of this formula to further explore the connection of entanglement and mixedness in multipartite systems and study the dynamics of entanglement in open systems. We introduce the entanglement, its definition, and the properties of good measures of entanglement in two party and many party systems. This will set the stage for the developments that follow in the thesis.
