Abstract
Mathematical models of cardiac electrophysiology are an important tool to investigate the underlying mecha- nisms responsible of arrhythmias. In particular, an im- portant question is the origin of atrial fibrillation (AF). Often, AF initiation is preceded by action potential dura- tion (APD) alternans, i.e., beat to beat oscillations in the APD, that arise at slower rates in patients with persistent AF than in those without AF or with paroxymal AF. Most of these arrhythmias appear as a conseque...
