What is it about?
This paper introduces diman (dimensional analysis), a Clojure based scientific software package with the ability to: create dimensional formulas, create dimensional equations, check dimensional homogeneity (consistency), and derive dimensionless products.

Why is it important?
Dimensional analysis is often overlooked in model making and simulation. Most are familiar with checks for dimensional homogeneity but few are familiar (if not aware) of deriving the complete set of dimensionless products. Derivation of set of dimensionless products can help provide complete information of experimental results of physical systems in a compact form and also transform hypothetical function that describes the physical system; diman is a tool that makes this possible.
