Dimensional analysis and physical similarity.
He demonstrates the concepts of intermediate asymptotics and the renormalization group as natural consequences of self-similarity and shows how and when these tools can tackle the task at hand, and when they cannot. Hooley took a position at Harvard, where she has been a faculty member since Based on courses taught to undergraduate and graduate students, the book can also be used for self-study by biologists, chemists, astronomers, engineers and geoscientists.
