Abstract

Three years ago, the fiftieth anniversary of Einthoven’s death was commemorated in Leiden by a symposium on developments in Electrocardiography during the past 50 years. The topic of computer model studies of the activation of the heart, discussed by Arntzenius et al. (1978) was introduced into the program and this might be regarded as a sign of, let us say, an official acceptation of this line of research as a new development in Electrocardiology.
