  • Abstract

We investigate an explicit finite difference scheme for a Beeler-Reuter based model of cardiac electrical activity. As our main result, we prove that the finite difference solutions are bounded in the $L^∞$-norm. We also prove the existence of a weak solution by showing convergence to the solutions of the underlying model as the discretization parameters tend to zero. The convergence proof is based on the compactness method.
