Abstract

top
This paper deals with a critical analysis on the application of mathematics to the study of complex biological systems with particular attention to tumor growth phenomena in competition with immune system. The paper, after a phenomenological description, outlines the mathematical problem of multiscales modelling and shows how the application of models to he study of phenomena of interest in biological science s may generate analytic and computational problems of great interest and complexity. The last part of the paper deals with some aspects of the education in mathematical sciences in the national and European framework.
