Stiffness analysis of cardiac cell models: implications on real-time heart simulation

The electrophysiology in a cardiac cell can be modelled as a system of ordinary differential equations. The efficient solution of these systems is important because they must be solved billions of times as sub-problems of organ-level simulations. The...
