The aim of these notes is to provide a brief overview of a large body recent work whose aim was to prove the Threshold Theorem for energy critical geometric nonlinear wave equations. Within the class of geometric wave equations we include nonlinear wave evolutions which have a geometric structure and origin, including a nontrivial gauge group. The problems discussed here include Wave Maps, Maxwell-Klein-Gordon, as well as the hyperbolic Yang-Mills flow. In a nutshell, the Threshold theorem
