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 ...
Modeling cardiac structural heterogeneity via space-fractional differential equations
We discuss here the use of non-local models in space and fractional order operators in the characterisation of structural complexity and the modeling of propagation in heterogeneous biological tissues. In the specific, we ...
