Global well-posedness of a haptotaxis model with spatial and age structure
A system of non-linear partial differential equations modeling tumor invasion into surrounding healthy tissue is analyzed. The model incorporates haptotaxis, i.e., the directed migratory response of tumor cells to the extracellular environment, as well as spatial and age structure of the tumor cells. Global existence and uniqueness of non-negative solutions is shown.
