The connection between scale invariant wavefunctions and solutions of some nonlinear equations (e.g., solitons and compactons) have been studied. Scale invariant functions axe shown to have variational properties and a nonlinear algebraic structure. Any two-scale equation follows from Hamilton's equation of an infinite-dimensional Hamiltonian system, providing a self-similar formalism that is useful in studies of hierarchical and nonlinear lattices, soliton and compacton waves. The algebraic structure of any scaling function is shown to be a deformation of the trigonometric series generating algebra.
