This book covers the main mathematical and numerical models in computational electrocardiology, ranging from microscopic membrane models of cardiac ionic channels to macroscopic bidomain, monodomain, eikonal models and cardiac source representations. These advanced multiscale and nonlinear models describe the cardiac bioelectrical activity from the cell level to the body surface and are employed in both the direct and inverse problems of electrocardiology. The book also covers advanced numerical techniques needed to efficiently carry out large-scale cardiac simulations, including time and space discretizations, decoupling and operator splitting techniques, parallel finite element solvers. These techniques are employed in 3D cardiac simulations illustrating the excitation mechanisms, the anisotropic effects on excitation and repolarization wavefronts, the morphology of electrograms in normal and pathological tissue and some reentry phenomena. The overall aim of the book is to present rigorously the mathematical and numerical foundations of computational electrocardiology, illustrating the current research developments in this fast-growing field lying at the intersection of mathematical physiology, bioengineering and computational biomedicine. This book is addressed to graduate student and researchers in the field of applied mathematics, scientific computing, bioengineering, electrophysiology and cardiology.
Presents the most innovative results in carbene chemistry, setting the foundation for new discoveries and applications
The discovery of stable carbenes has reinvigorated carbene chemistry research, with investigators seeking to develop carbenes into new useful catalysts and ligands. Presenting the most innovative and promising areas of carbene research over the past decade, this book explores newly discovered structural, catalytic, and organometallic aspects of carbene chemistry, with an emphasis on new and emerging synthetic applications.
Contemporary Carbene Chemistry features contributions from an international team of pioneering carbene chemistry researchers. Collectively, these authors have highlighted the most interesting and promising areas of investigation in the field. The book is divided into two parts:
All the chapters conclude with a summary of the current situation, new challenges on the horizon, and promising new research directions. A list of key reviews and suggestions for further reading also accompanies every chapter.
Each volume of the Wiley Series on Reactive Intermediates in Chemistry and Biology focuses on a specific reactive intermediate, offering a broad range of perspectives from leading experts that sets the stage for new applications and further discoveries.
Fast, flashy, and powerful, "muscle" cars were big, mass-produced American sports cars with lots of horsepower. For this unique coloring book, award-winning illustrator Bruce LaFontaine has expertly rendered 44 of these dynamic, legendary cars, down to the smallest detail. Among the models included here
This book, How To Lose Weight Fast, is a concise description of the simple principles involved in losing body weight. It covers the essentials of: 1] mind set, 2] what to eat, 3] when to eat, 4] how much to eat, 5] exercising, and the all-important 6] Magic Formula. This book is very easy to read and has several tables of foods-and-their-calories and fat-burning activities. It is small enough to fit into a vest pocket or a purse. It is definitely a take-it-with-you-everyday sort of book. Losing weight does not have to be difficult and certainly is not impossible. This book proves that !
"On their way back to Rockdale," Dharma explained, "John stopped at a McDonalds drive-through. He got a few cheep burgers to share with me and we pulled around to the parking space to unbag and eat them. It was a special moment." There had been another moment that was not so great.
