Two lectures. Dimensional analysis or paradise in physics

Autors: 
Trubetskov Dmitriy Ivanovich, Saratov State University
Abstract: 

In the two lectures read at school for senior pupils «Nonlinear days in Saratov for youth» the basic definitions of the theory of dimension and similarity are stated, and also some special ways for concrete problems decision, in particular, use Pi-theorem and additions of Huntley are presented. The solutions of problems from different areas of physics are shown.
