Catastrophe theory and some mathematical models have been studied in this paper, an important fact has been discovered, i. e. human heart beating has obvious catastrophic property. A new potential function matrix analysis method is proposed, so as to analyze ultrasound cardiography (UCG) and to judge the state of coronary artery disease quantitatively.
