Decay estimates for wave equations are crucial in the study of a broad range of nonlinear problems. In this talk I will describe recent and ongoing work on such estimates for linear wave equations on relativistic black hole space-times. The emphasis will be both on scalar waves and on spin systems such as the Maxwell equations.
