    Abstract: Objective: In the electrocardiogram (ECG) the U wave follows the T, which is considered to reflect the repolarization of the cardiac ventricles. Despite the U wave''s well-known clinical relevance, a satisfactory explanation of its origin is still outstanding. We have undertaken to...
