As part of the BMBFs Mathematics for Innovations programme this Workshop
will be held in Bad Herrenalb.
Mathematical modeling of aspects of cardiac physiology, such as
elastomechanics, electrophysiology and flow, has seen tremendous advances
during the last years. The coupling of two or more of these physics to an
integrated heart model remains challenging, though, due to differing
temporal and spatial scales and various ways of interaction.
In this workshop, we want to address the following questions: Which coupling
scenarios are relevant for certain use cases (e.g. during a physiological
heart beat or in disease modeling)? What are appropriate models to describe
the coupling and methods to solve the coupled system?
How to deal with uncertainty across multiple physics?
We will bring together experts from various disciplines.
