%X Fundamental problems in electrophysiology can be studied by computationally modeling and simulating the associated microscopic and macroscopic bioelectric fields. To study such fields computationally, researchers have developed a variety of numerical and computational techniques. Advances in computer architectures have allowed researchers to model increasingly complex biophysical systems. Modeling such systems requires a researcher to apply a wide variety of computational and numerical methods to describe the underlying physics and physiology of the associated three-dimensional geometries. Issues naturally arise as to the accuracy and efficiency of such methods. In this paper we review computational and numerical methods of solving bioelectric field problems. The motivating applications represent a class of bioelectric field problems that arise in electrocardiography and electroencephalography.
