Prostate Cancer Models Index
This page is an index of my prostate cancer modeling review project, the goal of which is to summarize as many published prostate cancer models as possible. In this index, I provide a link to a concise summary of each model. Summaries include the model equations, main assumptions and a concise statement of results. When relevant, I also provide MatLab LiveScripts with analyses of the model.
In general, I try to streamline notation and use consistent symbols for quantities used across models. For example, p(t) and x(t) and their variants will always represent PSA and tumor size (volume, mass or number of cells), respectively. Therefore, the summaries will often deviate from the notation used by the original authors. For convenience I provide a table of notation in each model summary.
