The paper analyses a number of mathematical models describing the growth and development of nonvascular tumors and proposes a new lattice-based computer model to simulate the tumor growth with nutrient consumption constraints. The modeling solution is able to reproduce the classic three layer structure familiar from multicellular spheroids: cell proliferation, quiescent and necrosis. The accuracy of this model is tested by comparing with a fractal morphometric technique two patterns, one…

A cellular automaton model examining the effects of oxygen, hydrogen ions and lactate on early tumour growth

TLDR
A hybrid mathematical model of intracellular pH regulation is presented that examines the effect of oxygen and pH on tumour growth and morphology and investigates the impact of pH regulatory mechanisms on the cellular pH gradient and tumour morphology.

Simulated brain tumor growth dynamics using a three-dimensional cellular automaton.

TLDR
A novel and versatile three-dimensional cellular automaton model of brain tumor growth that shows that macroscopic tumor behavior can be realistically modeled using microscopic parameters and demonstrates the flexibility of the model by showing the emergence, and eventual dominance, of a second tumor clone with a different genotype.

Nonlinear simulation of tumor growth

TLDR
It is demonstrated that critical conditions exist for which the tumor evolves to nontrivial dormant states or grows self-similarly (i.e., shape invariant) in the first two regimes, leading to the possibility of shape control and of controlling the release of tumor angiogenic factors by restricting the tumor volume-to-surface-area ratio.

The migration of cells in multicell tumor spheroids

TLDR
A mathematical model is proposed to explain the observed internalization of microspheres and 3H-thymidine labelled cells in steady-state multicellular spheroids and predicts that overall tumor growth is not only determined by proliferation rates but also by the ability of cells to convert readily between the classes.

Modeling growth of a heterogeneous tumor.

TLDR
The results of the current study illuminate the significance of stochastically modeling the responses of the tumor to a variety of medicinal treatments: the coefficient of variation of the malignant cells' population magnifies with time under chemotherapeutic regimens.

Mathematical modeling of capillary formation and development in tumor angiogenesis: Penetration into the stroma

TLDR
A mathematical model for the tumor vascularization theory of tumor growth proposed by Judah Folkman and subsequently established experimentally by him and his coworkers is presented and very good computational agreement with the time of vascularization and the rate of capillary tip growth observed in rabbit cornea experiments is obtained.

Emerging patterns in tumor systems: simulating the dynamics of multicellular clusters with an agent-based spatial agglomeration model.

TLDR
A novel agent-based model of spatio-temporal search and agglomeration is developed to investigate the dynamics of cell motility and aggregation with the assumption that tumors behave as complex dynamic self-organizing biosystems.

Mathematical modeling of capillary formation and development in tumor angiogenesis: Penetration into the stroma

TLDR
A mathematical model for the tumor vascularization theory of tumor growth proposed by Judah Folkman in the early 1970s and subsequently established experimentally by him and his coworkers is presented and very good computational agreement with the time of vascularization and the rate of capillary tip growth observed in rabbit cornea experiments is obtained.
