Available Master topics: Cardiac Modeling
Cardiac simulation has progressed to the point where highly patient specific mathematical models can be rapidly created from medical imaging.
In Computational Cardiac Modeling (CaMo) at Simula, scientists work together with doctors, engineers, and innovators and use mathematical modeling and simulation to improve understanding of heart disease and help improve its diagnosis and treatment.
The equations describing movement and mechanical interactions in the heart muscle are normally formulated in a quasi-stationary form, where the muscle is assumed to be in equilibrium at each time step.
Differential algebraic equations (DAEs) arise in a large number of physical a
The bidomain model is a well-established model for cardiac electro-physiology. The model consists of two coupled partial differential equations; one having a parabolic nature and the other resembling an elliptic equation.
Ordinary differential equations can be used to construct very detailed models
The excitation contraction coupling (ECC) is a signaling process that control
Some physiological processes are modeled using stochastic differential equati
