This collection of selected chapters offers a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art mathematical methods and tools for modeling and analyzing cancer phenomena. Topics covered include stochastic evolutionary models of cancer initiation and progression, tumor cords and their response to anticancer agents, and immune competition in tumor progression and prevention. The complexity of modeling living matter requires the development of new mathematical methods and ideas. This volume, written by first-rate researchers in the field of mathematical biology, is one of the first steps in that direction.
