Quasinormal frequencies are the damped modes of oscillation associated with linearized perturbations of a black hole. In this thesis we study the distribution of these frequencies in the complex plane for a class of solutions to the Einstein equations with negative cosmological constant; these are the so-called anti-de Sitter spacetimes. Particular emphasis is placed on the family of rotating Kerr--AdS black holes.
