Using singular extremals to obtain new equations of motion and unknown constants

  • E. R. Smol’yakov

The paper uses the concept of a singular extremal in the classical dimensional analysis, which considerably extends the capabilities of this analysis and allows finding the unknown constants and new motion equations.
