"Similarly to" and "Analogous to"


First, I'm sorry for my poor english. I'm not a native speaker. I want to ask some questions about using the word "Similarly to" and "Analogous to".


1. Can I use the word "Similarly to" at the beginning of the sentence and if it can, please give me some examples? 


2. I have just seen the sentence starting with the word "Analogous to", for example, 

        "Analogous to the motive force, a motive torque is defined as..."

    Is this correct? "Analogous" is an adjective so whether it could be at the beginning of a sentence.


Thank you so much.

Similar to and anagolous to/with can both be used (not similarly to).
