Chaotic Attractor in Tumor Growth and Decay

Authors: Wen-sau Yim, Michael Harney

Cancer growth and decay can be modeled as a system of chaotic nonlinear differential equations. The system is based on a reaction-diffusion cancer growth model, expressed by a mathematical model that is simplified by Ivancevicet. al. This allows useful parameters to be applied for simulation and then recreated in C and Java, to directly compare with its predecessor project. A variation in a set of the parameters is found to decrease tumor growth in the early stages of tumor development.
