In this talk we discuss dispersive estimates for wave equations with low regularity coefficients. It was shown by Smith and Tataru that wave equations with $C^{1,1}$ coefficients satisfy the same Strichartz estimates as the unperturbed wave equation on $\mathbb{R}^n$, and that for less regular coefficients a loss of derivatives in the data occurs. We improve these results for Lipschitz coefficients with additional structural assumptions. We also discuss perturbation results through paradifferential arguments, and a recently introduced class of function spaces adapted to Fourier integral operators.
