Abstract

The concept of similarity is widely used in many fields of geometry and mathematics; for application purposes, it is necessary to extend and to specify it according to the field of interest. In our case, the concept of similarity is closely related to the theory of physical models, with applications also in the interpretation of complex systems. In some cases, it is advantageous to distort the model, to amplify one dimension with respect to the others to facilitate measurements or reduce uncertainties, or to ensure the balance of certain quantities.
