5 Beyond Spherical Symmetry

Numerical studies of critical collapse should go beyond spherical symmetry (and in the first instance to axisymmetry) for three reasons:

In the following we review what has been done so far.

 5.1 Perturbative approach to angular momentum
 5.2 Axisymmetric vacuum gravity
 5.3 Scalar field
 5.4 Neutron star collision in axisymmetry
 5.5 Black hole collisions
