The mathematical modelling of cancer: a review: a review

John Carl Panetta, Mark A. J. Chaplain, John A. Adam

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Mathematical models have been used to describe almost every aspect of cancer, from its inception to treatment. This review will look into some of these models; discuss their results; determine how they relate to known medical information; and, speculate on some of the future avenues of research in cancer modelling. This review is not meant to be complete but rather touch on some areas of current research in cancer modelling.
