The inverse problem of electrocardiography is an important issue in the diagnosis of cardiac electrical conduction defects and other cardiac related health issues. An accurate solution to this problem provides an important addition to methods of pinpointing regions of tissue damage following acute myocardial infarction or establishing the sites of ectopic beats. However, before such technology can be placed in the hands of clinicians, considerable developmental work must be performed in the areas of applied mathematics, computation, physics and engineering.

This book provides a unique survey of recent advances in these areas and highlights ongoing research and problems to be overcome before such accurate solutions can be obtained. It is primarily intended for researchers and graduate students in biomedical engineering, and for clinicians who wish to apply these techniques in their work.
