An interacting particle approach to problems in cancer: osteocyte network formation and histology analysis

Abstract:

Two important factors in cancer progression are: metastatic ability, cancer spreading and disrupting healthy function of bodily processes; and heterogeneity, the variation in different cancers caused by genetics, the microenvironment, and stochasticity. In this thesis, we investigate two scenarios of interest using models and techniques inspired by interacting particle systems.

First, we model osteocyte network formation. Within bone, dendritic osteocytes form a spatial network allo...
