Insects have much to offer when it comes to designing engineering solutions to problems, whether for robotics, aeronautics, computing or materials science. Insect Mechanics and Control, the first book ever published on this topic, bringing together world experts working at the interface between entomology, engineering and physics to showcase the exciting research in this rapidly growing field. The authors, applied mathematicians, physicists or quantitative biologists, provide coverage of their subjects in a way that uses the minimum necessary technical detail, making the subject accessible to biologists and their students who are not expert in the field. The book in turn provides a valuable compendium of biological information for physical scientists, thus promoting interchange between the biological and physical sciences.

* Covers important problems in mechanics and control, by reference to extraordinary and fascinating insect examples
* Written by experts, physicists, applied mathematicians and quantitative biologists
* Offers a biological inspiration to physical scientists, from MEMS design to robotics
* Provides a compelling example of integrative biology
