    • BRIEF DESCRIPTION: The Evolution tumor is a very complex process that takes place at different scales. From a modeling point of view there are three scales of interest in the sub-cellular, cellular and macroscopic one. Mathematical models require a variety of theoretical tools from many disciplines (continuous mechanics, kinetic theory, stochastic processes, system theory, compartmental models, multiphase flow,..).
