Numerical techniques

We want the numerical simulations of the previous direct or inverse models to be efficient and reliable with respect to the need of the medical community. It needs to qualify and guarantee the accuracy and robustness of the numerical techniques and the efficiency of the resolution algorithms.

Based on previous work on solving the monodomain and bidomain equations [13] , [14] and [19] and [2] , we will focus on

  • High-order numerical techniques with respect to the variables with physiological meaning, like velocity, AP duration and restitution properties;

  • Efficient, dedicated preconditionning techniques coupled with parallel computing.
