Modeling calcium wave based on anomalous subdiffusion of calcium sparks in cardiac myocytes.

Ca(2+) sparks and Ca(2+) waves play important roles in calcium release and calcium propagation during the excitation-contraction (EC) coupling process in cardiac myocytes. Although the classical Fick's law is widely used to model Ca(2+) sparks and Ca(2+) waves in cardiac myocytes, it fails to r...
