A Darcy’s law model of tumor growth

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


This talk introduces a popular mathematical model to simulatetumor growth. It is based on the Darcy’s law in porous media.It assumes the tumor cells migrate in a porous tissue with holesand the pressure produced by cell proliferation and death createsthe flow which pushes cell to move. The tumor cells rely onthe nutrient from surrounding region to proliferate and thus thetumor volume increases. We will focus on a one dimensionalmodel to derive some of its interesting mathematical properties.
