2 The phenomena 

In this section we present a phenomenological view of critical collapse. We present in some detail the spherically symmetric scalar field coupled to gravity, the model in which Choptuik first discovered critical phenomena, and describe his findings. Then we give a brief overview of the other systems that have been investigated since then.
