By Grigory Isaakovich Barenblatt

Many phenomena in nature, engineering or society while noticeable at an intermediate distance, in house or time, show the notable estate of self-similarity: they reproduce themselves as scales switch, topic to so-called scaling legislation. it is the most important to understand the main points of those legislation, in order that mathematical types might be effectively formulated and analysed, and the phenomena in query could be extra deeply understood. during this 2003 publication, the writer describes and teaches the artwork of learning scaling legislation, ranging from dimensional research and actual similarity, that are the following given a contemporary remedy. He demonstrates the options of intermediate asymptotics and the renormalisation crew as usual attributes of self-similarity and exhibits how and while those notions and instruments can be utilized to take on the duty to hand, and after they can't. in keeping with classes taught to undergraduate and graduate scholars, the booklet can be used for self-study by way of biologists, chemists, astronomers, engineers and geoscientists.
