Models of Smooth Muscle Electrical Activity
A model must be simpler than the phenomenon being modeled or else the analysis of the model might even be more difficult than that of the phenomenon itself. Under such circumstances a model will serve little useful purpose. To achieve a model simpler than the true phenomenon, it is natural that some simplifying assumptions have to be made.
