Bidomain models become increasingly popular for studying and simulating electrophysiological waves in the cardiac tissue. We study and compare different numerical schemes to solve the bidomain equations. Our analysis is based on criteria such as the stability and accuracy of the schemes.

Keywords:  Anisotropic bidomain models; Electrophysiology; Numerical schemes
