    Abstract: In this paper we extend a previous 2D parallel implementation of a continuous-discrete model of tumour-induced angiogenesis. In particular, we examine the transport and capture of magnetic nanoparticles through a newly formed vascular network of blood vessels. We demonstrate how our models can be used to describe the dynamics of magnetic nanopartic... Show More
