Birds routinely execute aerial maneuvers that are far beyond the capabilities of our best aircraft control systems. The complexity and variability of the aerodynamics during these maneuvers are formidable, with dominant flow structures (e.g., vortices) that are difficult to predict robustly from first-principles (Navier-Stokes) models. Here we argue that… CONTINUE READING
