Linear system analysis applied to the coronary circulation
- 91 Downloads
The coronary circulation is a complex system of vascular channels through which flow is determined by driving pressure, adjustable hydraulic resistances, and mechanical factors such as compression and geometrical variations. Gaining understanding the way this functions is hampered by the limited possibilities of observing the details of this complex system. It is obvious that help is sought from the theories and techniques which have been developed to design and describe man-made complex systems to analyze biological systems.
