We implement a mackerel (Scomber scombrus) body-shaped robot, programmed to display the three most typical body/caudal fin undulatory kinematics (i.e. anguilliform, carangiform and thunniform), in order to biomimetically investigate hydrodynamic issues not easily tackled experimentally with live fish. The robotic mackerel, mounted on a servo towing system(More)
Plunge diving is the most commonly used feeding method of a gannet, which can make the gannet transit from air to water rapidly and successfully. A large impact acceleration can be generated due to the air-to-water transition. However, the impact acceleration experienced by the gannet during plunge diving has not been studied. In this paper, this issue is(More)
In this paper we present an algorithm for generating the lexicographi cally smallest representatives of all the n bead necklaces in k colors The time required is O nN k where N n k is the number of necklaces with n beads of k colors To our knowledge this is the rst algorithm for this problem which has been proved to asymptotically improve the obvious O n k(More)
In this paper we present an algorithm for generating the lexicographi-cally smallest representatives of all the n-bead necklaces in k-colors. The time required is O(nN n k), where N n k is the number of necklaces with n beads of k colors. To our knowledge, this is the rst algorithm for this problem which has been proved to asymptotically improve the obvious(More)
