Abstract

I will discuss the propagation of singularities for the wave equation on manifolds with corners, with special attention paid to the issue whether some part of the reflected waves is weaker than the incoming wave (in terms of Sobolev regularity). This is joint work with Richard Melrose and Jared Wunsch.
