In brief: A Book Chapter

That's a huge question you just asked, and 400 characters isn't going to cut it.
Short answer: irritability (triggered and automatic rhythms) and the heart's electricity getting caught in a loop (reentrant rhythms). If you want to drop a lot of cash, i can recommend some great books explaining the basis of these arrhythmias.
