He demonstrates the concepts of intermediate asymptotics and the renormalization group as scaoing consequences of self-similarity and shows how and when these tools can tackle the task at hand, and when they cannot.

A close connection of intermediate asymptotics and self-similarities of the second kind with a fundamental concept of theoretical physics, the renormalization group, is explained and discussed. This was followed by research work at Cambridge University. She then attended Magdalen College, Oxford, where she completed her D.
