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.

Reviews

"Cancer Modelling and Simulation is an important contribution to the field that undoubtedly will stimulate and remain a valuable reference for continued research for many years."

– In Anticancer Research, September-October 2007, Vol. 27, No. 5A
