Towards an integrated numerical heart model

Coupling the relevant physics the right way

Workshop on Cardiac Modelling

about what

Mathematical modeling of aspects of cardiac physiology, such as elastomechanics, electrophysiology and flow, has seen tremendous advances during the last years. The coupling of two or more of these physics to an integrated heart model remains challenging, though, due to differing temporal and spatial scales and various ways of interaction. In this workshop, we want to address the following questions: Which coupling scenarios are relevant for certain use cases (e.g. during a physiological heart beat or in disease modeling)? What are appropriate models to describe the coupling and methods to solve the coupled system? How to deal with uncertainty across multiple physics?
