This App solves the optimal axisymmetric slip profile of microswimmers with user-defined shape. Such a slip profile minimizes the power loss of the active microswimmer swimming at unit speed. The algorithm is documented in the paper "Optimal slip velocities of micro-swimmers with arbitrary axisymmetric shapes" (
