  Analogy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Analogous objects shared an idea, a pattern, a regularity, an attribute, an effect or a function.
It is argued that every analogical argument is partially superfluous and can be rendered as a deduction stating as a premise a (previously hidden) universal proposition which applied both to the source and the target.
Analogous structures are the result of convergent evolution and should be contrasted with homologous structures.

 Analogous Electrical and Mechanical Systems
Draw over circuit, replacing electrical elements with their analogs; current sources replaced by force generators, voltage sources by input velocities, resistors with friction elements, inductors with springs, and capacitors (which must be grounded) by capacitors.
Draw over circuit, replacing mechanical elements with their analogs; force generators by current sources, input velocities by voltage sources, friction elements by resistors, springs by inductors, and masses by capacitors (which are grounded).
Converting a circuit diagram to a mechanical 2 analog uses a similar procedure as electrical to mechanical 1 except that the voltages around a loop summed to zero (instead of the sum of currents at a node) is analogous to the sum of forces at a point being summed to zero.

 Analogous Learning   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
It suggests that analogous thinking mainly compares structures in both areas and that some cognitive elements which are not yet represented in the target domain can be transferred from the basic to the target domain.
The gain of analogous reasoning lies in the systematicity principle which means, that transfer begins with relations of the highest order and the others of lower order follow nearly automatically.
Therefore analogous thinking should be a top down process beginning with the construction of general rules followed by more specific relations and down to attributes and statements on objects [The compatibility of Gentners information theory background with our constructivistic paradigm is discussed somewhere else.

I presume that no one will doubt that all such analogous variations are due to the several races of the pigeon having inherited from a common parent the same constitution and tendency to variation, when acted on by similar unknown influences.
With pigeons, however, we have another case, namely, the occasional appearance in all the breeds, of slaty-blue birds with two fl bars on the wings, white loins, a bar at the end of the tail, with the outer feathers externally edged near their bases with white.
But the best evidence of analogous variations is afforded by parts or organs which are generally constant in character, but which occasionally vary so as to resemble, in some degree, the same part or organ in an allied species.

Recall that the standard procedure with an argument from analogy is (step 1) display the analogous argument alongside the target argument; (step 2) point out that the conclusion of the analogous argument does not follow; and (step 3) conclude that the conclusion of the target probably does not follow.

 Doxpara: Analogous Key Arrays: A Proposal Regarding Relating Keyboard Hotkeys With Screen Position
Analogous Key Arrays, or AKA´s, are command arrays with keyboard hotkeys that correspond to the physical location of the onscreen commands.
In conclusion, the Analogous Key Array applies instinctual properties such as relative position and cardinal direction to keyboard hotkey assignment by relating onscreen location with keyboard location.
The 3x3 can remain unmarked(leave it to the tooltips to document their behavior), but it´s going to be quite difficult for a user to immediately pick which of, say, ten entries a random one near the middle is. Splitting the 10x1 into two 5x1´s is an alternative, for instance.

The Commissioner further argued in the brief on appeal that a disengageable catch is a common everyday mechanical concept, however the court held that the Commissioner did not explain why a "catch" of unstated structure is such a concept, and why it would have made the claimed invention obvious.).
With this claim interpretation, the court applied the "field of endeavor test" for analogous art and determined that the references were within the field of applicant's endeavor and hence was analogous art because toothbrushes are structurally similar to small brushes for hair, and a toothbrush could be used to brush facial hair.
