On the Foundations of Cancer Modelling: Selected Topics, Speculations, and Perspectives

  title={On the Foundations of Cancer Modelling: Selected Topics, Speculations, and Perspectives},
  author={LI N.K. and Philip K. Maini},
This paper presents a critical review of selected topics related to the modelling of cancer onset, evolution and growth, with the aim of illustrating, to a wide applied mathematical readership, some of the novel mathematical problems in the field. This review attempts to capture, from the appropriate literature, the main issues involved in the modelling of phenomena related to cancer dynamics at all scales which characterise this highly complex system: from the molecular scale up to that of… CONTINUE READING
