Neither Gatenby nor Gillies are mathematicians (the first is a physician whereas the second is a biologist) but both have worked before on some rather interesting models of carcinogenesis. In this paper they again introduced one of their models, constructed around a differential equation with a Lotka-Volterra term, in order to study how the microenvironment contributes to select phenotypical traits (conferred by genetic mutations).
