Periodical body's deformations are optimal strategies for locomotion

Abstract : A periodical cycle of body's deformation is a common strategy for locomotion (see for instance birds, fishes, humans). The aim of this paper is to establish that the auto-propulsion of deformable object is optimally achieved using periodic strategies of body's deformations. This property is proved for a simple model using optimal control theory framework.
