In the recent years, a lot of research has been devoted to the study of the behaviour of scalar waves in the exterior region of black hole spacetimes. This is intimately connected to the problem of non linear stability of such black hole spacetimes as solutions to the Einstein equations. In this talk, we will explore some interesting theorems and results in this area. Of course no physics background is required!
