Differential equations are one of the most frequently used tools of mathematics for studying processes in natural and physical sciences. During recent years’ considerable interest has been given to numerical solution of delay differential equations (DDEs). This is because of the appearance of such equations in various areas such as economy, neural networks, ecology, medicine, engineering and many other areas. DDEs describe mathematical models for systems in which the rate of change depends not only on the current study period but also on their history in the past. Techniques for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and DDEs are based on numerical approaches of the solution. Nowadays, there are known a large number of methods for building numerical approximations of the initial value problem in DDEs and ODEs. We deal with the study of a particular problem of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML). We created a mathematical model with DDEs, conducted the analysis, studied the efficiency of numerical methods and highlighted the advantages and disadvantages of any method. This analysis can help better understand the dynamics of this disease, leading to improved treatment
