Stochastic models for cancer evolution - an overview about recent developments

Cancer is one of the most complex human diseases. In the last decade several mathematical models for cancer genesis have been proposed to study the evolutionary dynamics of cancer on a quantitative level. Still the modeling approaches are at the very beginning and the majority of questions about the initiation and progression of cancer remain unresolved. The talk will give an overview about these developments.
