The osteoclast and osteoblast populations in the presence of tumor stimulated by an initial osteoclast population elevated above the nontrivial steady state by 10 cell units. System of equations (7): The osteoclast population first increases as the osteoblast population decreases. The solutions converge to the nontrivial steady state = 5.0 and = 316.0 with damped oscillations. The parameters are α1 = 3.0, α2 = 4.0, β1 = 0.2, β2 = .02, g11 = 1.1, g22 = 0.0, g12 = 1.0, g21 = -0.5, γ T = .005, L T = 100, r11 = .005, r21 = 0.0, r12 = 0.0, r22 = 0.2. The initial conditions are C(0) = 15.0, B(0) = 316.0, T(0) = 1.
