This book explores computational approaches to cardiac electrophysiology. It discusses various computational models and techniques, and applies them to visualizations and reconstructions of both normal and pathological propagation in mammalian and human hearts. Uses non-linear biological and physiological models in form and techniques of ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations and eikonal equations.
