Abstract: In this paper we deal with the Cauchy problem for evolution equations with real characteristics. We show that the problem is well-posed in Sobolev spaces assuming a suitable decay of the coefficients as the space variable $ x\to\infty$. In some cases, such a decay may also compensate a lack of regularity with respect to the time variable $ t$.
