Computational Modelling of Cardiovascular System
by Prof. Frank Sachse
Frank B. Sachse:
Computational Cardiology
Brief outline:
This book is devoted to computerbased modeling
in cardiology, by taking an educational point of view, and by
summarizing knowledge from several, commonly considered delimited areas
of cardiac research in a consistent way.
First, the foundations and numerical techniques from mathematics are
provided, with a particular focus on the finite element and finite
differences methods. Then, the theory of electric fields and continuum
mechanics is introduced with respect to numerical calculations in
anisotropic biological media. In addition to the presentation of digital
image processing techniques, the following chapters deal with
particular aspects of cardiac modeling: cardiac anatomy, cardiac electro
physiology, cardiac mechanics, modeling of cardiac electro mechanics.
This book was written for researchers in modeling and cardiology, for clinical cardiologists, and for advanced students.
The Front Matter of the book is available for everyone.
The rest of the book is here available only for students at Tampere University of Technology.
