Application of Dynamical Systems in Cancer Therapy


Department of Mathematics, University of Birjand, Birjand


In this paper, we have proposed and analyzed a mathematical model for the study of interaction between tumor cells and oncolytic viruses. The model is analyzed using stability theory of differential equations.
