Project description

cbcbeat: an adjoint-enabled framework for computational cardiac electrophysiology



cbcbeat is a collection of Python-based solvers for cardiac electrophysiology models. cbcbeat offers basic and optimized solvers for the bidomain and monodomain equations coupled with cardiac cell models. cbcbeat is based on the FEniCS Project and dolfin-adjoint.
