Computational modeling of openirrigated electrodes for radiofrequency cardiac ablation including blood motionsaline flow interaction
(PLoS One, 2016)Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is a routine treatment for cardiac arrhythmias. During RFCA, the electrodetissue interface temperature should be kept below 80°C to avoid thrombus formation. Openirrigated electrodes ... 
Computational Model for Prediction of the Occurrence of Steam Pops during Irrigated Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation
(Computing in Cardiology 43, 2016)Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is a curative treatment for cardiac arrhythmias. Although globally a pretty safe procedure, it may present some risk. Steam pop is a serious complication that can occur during RFCA ... 
Effect of Tissue Elasticity in Cardiac Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation Models
(2018)Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is an effective treatment for different types of cardiac arrhythmias. However, major complications can occur, including thrombus formation and steam pops. We present a full 3D ... 
A computational model of openirrigated radiofrequency catheter ablation accounting for mechanical properties of the cardiac tissue
(2018)Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is an effective treatment for cardiac arrhythmias. Although generally safe, it is not completely exempt from the risk of complications. The great flexibility of computational models ...

Is minimising the convergence rate the best choice for efficient Optimized Schwarz preconditioning in heterogeneous coupling? The StokesDarcy case
(2019)Optimized Schwarz Methods (OSM) are domain decomposition techniques based on Robintype interface condition that have became increasingly popular in the last two decades. Ensuring convergence also on nonoverlapping ... 
Optimized Schwarz Methods in the StokesDarcy Coupling
(IMA J. Num. Analysis 38 (4), 20181016)This article studies optimized Schwarz methods for the Stokes–Darcy problem. Robin transmission conditions are introduced, and the coupled problem is reduced to a suitable interface system that can be solved using Krylov ... 
An introduction to mathematical and numerical modeling in heart electrophysiology
(2016)The electrical activation of the heart is the biological process that regulates the contraction of the cardiac muscle, allowing it to pump blood to the whole body. In physiological conditions, the pacemaker cells of the ... 
Modeling cardiac structural heterogeneity via spacefractional differential equations
(Computational and Mathematical Biomedical Engineering (CMBE2017) Proceedings, 2017)We discuss here the use of nonlocal 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 ... 
Generalization of the Pythagorean Eigenvalue Error Theorem and its Application to Isogeometric Analysis
(Numerical Methods for PDEs, 20181013)This chapter studies the effect of the quadrature on the isogeometric analysis of the wave propagation and structural vibration problems. The dispersion error of the isogeometric elements is minimized by optimally blending ... 
Robust numerical methods for nonlocal (and local) equations of porous medium type. Part II: Schemes and experiments
(SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, 2018)\noindent We develop a unified and easy to use framework to study robust fully discrete numerical methods for nonlinear degenerate diffusion equations $$ \partial_t u\mathfrak{L}[\varphi(u)]=f(x,t) \qquad\text{in}\qquad ... 
Detection of Sand Dunes on Mars Using a Regular Vinebased Classification Approach
(Knowledge Based Systems, 201808)This paper deals with the problem of detecting sand dunes from remotely sensed images of the surface of Mars. We build on previous approaches that propose methods to extract informative features for the classification of ... 
Uniqueness of degreeone Ginzburg–Landau vortex in the unit ball in dimensions N ≥ 7

Shear flow dynamics in the BerisEdwards model of nematic liquid crystals
(Proceedings of the Royal Society AMathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences, 20180214)We consider the BerisEdwards model describing nematic liquid crystal dynamics and restrict to a shear flow and spatially homogeneous situation. We analyze the dynamics focusing on the effect of the flow. We show that in ... 
Dynamics and flow effects in the BerisEdwards system modeling nematic liquid crystals
