Global Attractor for a Chemotaxis Model with Reaction Term

Xueyong Chen and Jianwei Shen

Full-text: Open access


A chemotaxis model with reproduction term in a bounded domain ΩRn is discussed in this paper, where n=2,3. First, the existence of a global-in-time solution is given, and then a global attractor for this model is obtained.
