Optimal Dynamics of a Spherical Squirmer in Eulerian Description
Abstract
The problem of optimization of a cycle of tangential deformations of the surface of a spherical object (microsquirmer) selfpropelling in a viscous fluid at low Reynolds numbers is represented in a noncanonical Hamiltonian form. The evolution system of equations for the coefficients of expansion of the surface velocity in the associated Legendre polynomials
