Talk Abstract
Seminar on Industrial Problems
Mathematical Applications in Cardiac Electrophysiology
October 30, 1998

Presented by:

Eric Voth
Endocardial Solutions, Inc.

Talk will be in Vincent Hall 570 at 10:10 am.

The fields of medicine and biology offer no shortage of fascinating applications for advanced mathematics. This talk will give a brief background of one specific clinical domain, introduce the major relevant problems, and describe the solutions implemented by our company. The problems concern how best to locate catheters relative to each other inside the heart, determine the internal geometry of the heart, and reconstruct its electrical activity. We will conclude with some open areas for further research.
