The existence of solutions for tumor invasion models with time and space dependent diffusion

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We shall show the existence of a solution for a nonlinear parabolic system. This system is a tumor invasion model which has the time and space dependent diffusion coefficient. In this paper, we apply an existence result for Quasi-Variational Inequalities. Quasi-Variational Inequality is a problem to find a function which satisfies a variational inequality in which the constraint depends upon the unknown function. In this paper, I shall show how to approach to our tumor invasion model by Quasi-Variational inequality, and obtain a solution for it.
