Palaiseau Cedex -
The modeling of swimming at the micro scale, either for biological understanding of microorganisms’ motility, e.g. bacteria, or for the conceptual building of small mechanisms capable of underwater displacement, involves low Reynolds number flows. This paper is a short review of recent links unveiled by the author and his collaborators between this problem and control theory.
