Course description5 cu
The course will provide detailed insights in modeling approaches, which are applied to describe and reconstruct physical properties and physiology of the cardiovascular system. Students will be enabled to classify modeling approaches and select appropriate models as research and development tools. We will introduce and analyze mathematical models, which are used to quantify electrophysiology at level of single channels, cells, tissue up to whole organs. Models of cellular force development and tissue mechanics will be discussed. Numerical methods for solving of the underlying systems of equations will be addressed with regard to their efficient implementation.
