This paper is concerned with the mathematical analysis of a coupled elliptic-parabolic system modeling the interaction between the propagation of electric potential and subsequent deformation of the cardiac tissue. The problem consists in a reaction-diffusion system governing the dynamics of ionic quantities, intra and extra-cellular potentials, and the elasticity equations are adopted to describe the motion of an incompressible material. The coupling between muscle contraction, biochemical… CONTINUE READING
