In this talk, I will present a mathematical model that is suitable to simulate cardiac function, thanks to its capability to describe the interaction between electrical, mechanical, and fluid-dynamical processes occurring in the heart.  

The model comprises a system of nonlinear differential equations (either ordinary and partial) featuring a multi-physics and multi-scale nature. Efficient numerical strategies are devised to allow for the analysis of both heart function and dysfunction. These strategies rely on both classical physics-based numerical discretization methods and machine-learning algorithms, as well as on their interplay.
