Mathematical Modeling of Tumor Growth
Preliminary: Over the last decade or so there has been renewed interest in the mathematical modeling of tumor growth. This book presents an overview of recent mathematical models developed to examine the many stages of cancer growth and development from a single mutant cell through to the metastatic spread of the disease. The mathematical models employed are ordinary and partial differential
equation models, discrete models, and continuum mechanics models. Various analytical and numerical methods are used in the analysis of these models and at all times clinical implications of the model
results are considered.
