A comparison of discrete and continuum models of cardiac electrophysiology

Abstract:

When modelling tissue-level cardiac electrophysiology, a continuum approximation to the discrete cell-level equations, known as the bidomain equations, is often used to maintain computational tractability. The bidomain equations are derived from the discrete equations using a mathematical technique known as homogenisation. As part of this derivation conductivity tensors are specified for use in the continuum model. Analysing the derivation of the bidomain equations allows us to investigate...
