In this project we are interested in discussing about necessary and sufficient conditions for the Cauchy problem so that a class ofweakly hyperbolic operators can be well-posed in spaces of functions like infinitely differentiable functions, Sobolev spaces or moreappropriate scales of function spaces. Because in the theory of weakly hyperbolic operators we have the effect of loss of regularity, we will study whether the loss of derivatives reallyappears and will determine upper and lower bounds for the loss of regularity.
