This book covers a wide range of animals from flagellated microorganisms to marine mammals. It follows qBio-mechanisms of Animals in Swimming and Flyingq published in 2004 including 11 chapters. This time, the book includes 31 chapters on the latest researches into natural autonomous systems and locomotion in both flying and swimming organisms. The area of sports science such as analysis and simulation of human swimming is newly added. The computational frameworks for the modeling, simulation and optimization of animals in swimming and flying demonstrate an important role in the progress of interdisciplinary work in the fields of biology and engineering.This paper studies the flapping-of-wings flight of a butterfly, which is rhythmic and cyclic in motion. The objective is to ... 1 Introduction Butterflies fly irregularly and their flapping-of-wings flights do not seem to be controlled. But, in reality theiranbsp;...
