To examine the influence of the spiral coiling of the cochlea upon the motion of the basilar membrane, a mathematical model of the cochlea is constructed. The formulation of the problem leads to Laplace's equation in three dimensions in a curvilinear coordinate system plus corresponding boundary conditions. By basing the choice of the coordinate system upon… CONTINUE READING
