Abstract: The fundamental equations in Einstein's theory of general relativity are wave equations on curved spaces. The behavior of waves becomes particularly interesting close to event horizons of black holes or close to so called Cauchy horizons. I will explain new results on this topic and relate them to the following classical open questions:
Is there a general mathematical obstruction to time
