Pathmanathan, P. and Bernabeu, M O and Bordas, R. and Cooper, J and Garny, A. and Pitt-Francis, J. M. and Whiteley, J. P. and Gavaghan, D. J. (2010) A numerical guide to the solution of the bidomain equations of
cardiac electrophysiology. Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, 102 (No. 2-3). pp. 136-155.
Simulation of cardiac electrical activity using the bidomain equations can be a massively computationally
demanding problem. This study provides a comprehensive guide to numerical bidomain modelling. Each component of bidomain simulationsddiscretisation, ODE-solution, linear system solution, and parallelisationdis discussed, and previously-used methods are reviewed, new methods are proposed, and issues which cause particular difficulty are highlighted. Particular attention is paid to the choice of stimulus currents, compatibility conditions for the equations, the solution of singular linear systems, and
convergence of the numerical scheme.
