In the past decade several research groups around the world
suggested several technologies that can contribute to the
IUPS Physiome project . We have presented the Ab
stract Field Layer (AFL) and the Field Representation Lan
guage (FRL)  as aides for describing and interchanging
models, model results, and experimental data. In this paper
we present a framework that uses AFL for solving spatial
and temporal ﬁelds. We also present an implementation of
a solver for a tissue model of the mammalian sino-atrial
node. The purpose of the work presented is to show how
multi-scaled models can be easily combined using AFL to
produce accurate models with relatively little effort.
