We present a novel approach which aims at high-performance uncertainty quantification for cardiac electrophysiology simulations. Employing the monodomain equation to model the transmembrane potential inside the cardiac cells, we evaluate the effect of spatially correlated perturbations of the heart fibers on the statistics of the resulting quantities of interest. Our methodology relies on a close integration of multilevel quadrature methods, parallel iterative solvers and space-time finite…

Mathematical Modeling of Electrocardiograms: A Numerical Study
A mathematical model, based on partial differential equations, which is able to provide realistic 12-lead ECGs, coupled to a phenomenological ionic model in the heart, and a generalized Laplace equation in the torso is devised.
Multilevel Quadrature for Elliptic Parametric Partial Differential Equations in Case of Polygonal Approximations of Curved Domains
This article reverse the multilevel quadratures method via the sparse grid construction by applying differences of quadrature rules to finite element discretizations of increasing resolution, and presents a rigorous error and regularity analysis of the fully discrete solution.
Multi-level Monte Carlo Finite Element method for elliptic PDEs with stochastic coefficients
The overall complexity of computing mean fields as well as k-point correlations of the random solution is proved to be of log-linear complexity in the number of unknowns of a single Multi-level solve of the deterministic elliptic problem.
A Novel Rule-Based Algorithm for Assigning Myocardial Fiber Orientation to Computational Heart Models
A novel Laplace–Dirichlet Rule-Based (LDRB) algorithm is presented to perform this task with speed, precision, and high usability and convincingly show that the LDRB algorithm is a robust alternative to DTI for assigning fiber orientation to computational heart models.
Simulation Studies of the Electrocardiogram
A digital computer model is presented for the simulation of the body surface electrocardiogram (ECG) during ventricular activation and recovery, using a three-dimensional array of approximately 4000 points which is subdivided into 23 regions.
Multilevel Quasi-Monte Carlo Uncertainty Quantification for Advection-Diffusion-Reaction
We survey the numerical analysis of a class of deterministic, higher-order QMC integration methods in forward and inverse uncertainty quantification algorithms for advection-diffusion-reaction (ADR)
On Sampling Spatially-Correlated Random Fields for Complex Geometries
A geodesic-based modification of correlation kernels used in the truncated Karhunen-Loeve expansion with pivoted Cholesky factorization is proposed, which renders the method efficient even for complex geometries, provided that the correlation length is not too small.
Simulation Studies of the Electrocardiogram: I. The Normal Heart
Simulated isopotential surface maps during both activation and recovery are in good agreement with data for humans reported in the literature.
