MATH 47 Introduction to Mathematical Oncology

Introduction into cancer biology and basic mathematical approaches to simulate cancer dynamics on the subcellular, cellular, and tissue level. Techniques for quantitative modeling are plentiful, and an increasing number of theoretical approaches are successfully applied to cancer biology. Differential equation models and individual-based cell models paved the way into quantitative cancer biology about two decades ago. Herein we will give an introduction on how such models are derived and how they can be utilized to simulate tumor growth and treatment response. We will then discuss a number of different models and discuss their confirmative and predictive power for cancer biology.

Prerequisite

MATH 22 and MATH 24, MATH 23, one of COSC 1, COSC 10, ENGS 20 or equivalent experience.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:QDS

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
