Theory and Simulation of Stationary Wave Propagation
Stationary spiral wave phenomena, in simulated myocardium consisting of AP models, and their associated characteristics (such as rotational angular velocity, core radius, and wavefront morphology) are topics of major theoretical and practical interest. These topics will be discussed in this chapter within the framework of findings from Zykov , which are valid under the following assumptions: an unrestricted domain of spiral wave propagation only one spiral wave is initiated spiral wave rotation is stationary and the resultant period of circulation T = 2ω/π, is constant.
