A space-fractional Monodomain model for cardiac electrophysiology combining anisotropy and heterogeneity on realistic geometries
Classical models of electrophysiology do not typically account for the effects of high structural heterogeneity in the spatio-temporal description of excitation waves propagation. We consider a modification of the Monodomain ...
Discretizations of the spectral fractional Laplacian on general domains with Dirichlet, Neumann, and Robin boundary conditions
In this work, we propose novel discretisations of the spectral fractional Laplacian on bounded domains based on the integral formulation of the operator via the heat-semigroup formalism. Specifically, we combine suitable ...
A computational multiscale model of cortical spreading depression propagation
(Computers and Mathematics with Applications, 2016-12-19)
Cortical Spreading Depression (CSD) is a disruption of the brain hemostasis that, originating in the visual cortex and traveling towards the frontal lobe, temporarily impairs the normal functioning of neurons. Although, ...
Spectral analysis of a block-triangular preconditioner for the bidomain system in electrocardiology
(Electronic Transactions on Numerical Analysis, 2012-12-31)
In this paper we analyze in detail the spectral properties of the block-triangular preconditioner introduced by Gerardo-Giorda et al. [J. Comput. Phys., 228 (2009), pp. 3625-3639] for the Bidomain system in non-symmetric ...
