  • Negative-tension instability of scroll waves and Winfree turbulence in the Oregonator model 

    Alonso Muñoz, Sergio; Sagués Mestres, Francesc; Mikhailov, Alexander S (2006-10-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Excitable media support self-organized scroll waves which can be unstable and give rise to three-dimensional wave chaos. Winfree turbulence of scroll waves results from the negative-tension instability of scroll waves; it ...
  • Wave pattern dynamics in fluctuating media

  • Buffering and total calcium levels determine the presence of oscillatory regimes in cardiac cells 

    Marchena Angos, Miquel; Echebarría Domínguez, Blas; Shiferaw, Yohannes; Álvarez Lacalle, Enrique (2020-09-24)
    Article
    Open Access
    Calcium oscillations and waves induce depolarization in cardiac cells which are believed to cause life-threathening arrhythimas. In this work, we study the conditions for the appearance of calcium oscillations in both a ...
