Abstract: 

I will discuss recent work in collaboration with Jacques Smulevici (Paris) regarding the evolution of solutions to the massive wave equation on Kerr-AdS black holes. In particular, we prove a logarithmic decay in time for general solutions and also that this rate is in fact optimal. Time permitting, I will also talk about the coupled spherically symmetric Einstein-Klein-Gordon system in the asymptotically AdS context.
