3 The basic scenario 

In this section we take a more abstract point of view and present the general ideas underlying critical phenomena in gravitational collapse, without reference to a specific system. This is useful, because these ideas are really quite simple, and are best formulated in the language of dynamical systems rather than general relativity.
