I will present a vector field method for the linear wave equation on a wide class of spacetimes through which one can obtain almost optimal energy and pointwise decay results, as well as precise asymptotics. I will also talk about applications of the above method to problems in general relativity. This is joint work with S. Aretakis and D. Gajic.
