Description

Understanding how cancer tumours develop and spread is vital for finding treatments and cures. Cancer Modelling and Simulation demonstrates how mathematical modelling and computer simulation techniques are used to discover and gain insight into the dynamics of tumour development and growth. It highlights the benefits of tumour modelling, such as discovering optimal tumour therapy schedules, identifying the most promising candidates for further clinical investigation, and reducing the number of animal experiments. By examining the analytical, mathematical, and biological aspects of tumour growth and modelling, the book provides a common language and knowledge for professionals in several disciplines.show more

Review quote

"Cancer Modeling and Simulation provides readers with a current collection of experimental and mathematical approaches aimed at increased understanding of the multi-scale nature of tumor growth and progression. It is an appropriate supplemental text to any advanced mathematical biology course; as well as an ideal text around which to develop a special topics course on cancer modeling. Researchers working at the interface of mathematics and cancer biology have long awaited such a broad and well-orchestrated assemblage of contemporary techniques to study tumorigenesis."
