Abstract : Numerical models become a new and important tool to understand the mechanisms of cardiac arrythmias, delivering more and more accurate in-silico experiments. Beyond the development of mathematical models or numerical algorithms, a software tool must be developed to support this research. C.E.P.S. (Cardiac ElectroPhysiology Simulator) is a software tool under development by Inria Carmen team. Its purpose is to provide researchers from the modelling group, and collaborators, with a common environment to develop efficiently new models and numerical methods for cardiac electrophysiology. CEPS is designed to run on massively parallel architectures, and to make use of state-of-the-art and well known computing libraries to achieve realistic and complex heart simulations. Our short-term goals include solving monodomain and bidomain equations on 3D domain representing major structures of the heart (ventricles, atria and Purkinje fibers). CEPS supports the coupling surface/volume elements, surface/cable elements and volume/cable elements in order to include the complete structure of the heart. It is also designed to simulate electrocardiograms following heart/torso coupling. We also aim to automatically incorporate ionic models from CellML or JSIM databases. The structure of the code allows to easily include new PDE/ODE systems, to account for progresses in modelling, but also elements or numerical methods of arbitrary order of accuracy, for research on more efficient numerical solvers.
