Novel boundary conditions (BC's) are described which terminate propagating action potentials (PAP's) in matched impedance. Steady-state PAP's are stored and reused, obviating simulation of long cables to allow PAP's to approach steady state. These BC's help avoid misleading results and reduce computer time, allowing detailed representation of cardiac structures.
