Efficiency of swimming of micro-organism and singularity in shape space

Preprint English OPEN
Kawamura, Masako (1996)

Micro-organisms can be classified into three different types according to their size. We study the efficiency of the swimming of micro-organism in two dimensional fluid as a device for helping the explanation of this hierarchy in the size. We show that the efficiency of... View more
