Bidomain model solution using the finite volume method


In this paper we consider cardiac electrical activity through bidomain model, to describe the electrical behavior of cardiac tissue, based on current flow, electric potential distribution and conservation of charge. So we use the finite volume scheme built on rectangular meshes. Discretizing will focus on existing algorithms for elliptic and parabolic equations, with convergence guaranteed by the classical theory. © 2016 Jairo Villegas G.
