Continuous dependence on a parameter of exponential attractors for chemotaxis-growth system

Full-text: Open access


We study dependence on a parameter of exponential attractors. As known, exponetial attractors are not uniquely determined from a dissipative dynamical system even if they exist. But we prove in this paper that one can construct an exponential attractor which depends continuously on a parameter in the dynamical system. This result is then applied to the chemotaxis-growth system.
