We consider a one-dimensional two-component interacting Fermi gas in an optical lattice with an external potential, the Hamiltonian of the system is the Hubbard Hamiltonian with an external potential which can be spin-dependent. The ground state and time evolution are solved using the time-evolving block decimation algorithm (TEBD). We show the dynamics of colliding gases of different spins, and the dynamics of a minority spin in an expansion. [1]
