We review some recent results, joint with A. Shao (and partly Volker Schlue), regarding the control one can obtain for some linear and non-linear wave equations, from Cauchy data on suitably large portions of time-like surfaces. We obtain control of the solution on specific space-like surfaces which have the property that any null ray crossing the surface ``registers’’ on the Cauchy data set. This is applied to understand the singularity profile of some focusing non-linear waves. Time permitting, we may discuss some more recent work in this connection.
