 This volume contains notes of the lectures given at the Courant Institute and a DMVSeminar at Oberwolfach. The focus is on the recent work of the authors on semilinear wave equations with critical Sobolev exponents and on wave maps in two space dimensions. Background material and references have been added to make the notes selfcontained. The book is suitable for use in a graduatelevel course on the topic. Titles in this series are copublished with the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in partial differential equations. Table of Contents  The wave equation
 Conservation laws
