Starting from dimensional analysis and physical similarity, G. It’s crucial to know the details of these laws, baarenblatt that mathematical models can be properly formulated and analysed, and the phenomena in question can be more deeply understood. Hooley took a position at Harvard, where she has scalinb a faculty member since Needless to say, coming from this author, the book is clearly and elegantly written, well presented and well illustrated.
