Theoretical and numerical analysis for a hybrid tumor model with diffusion depending on vasculature

12/23/2020 ∙ by A. Fernández-Romero, et al. ∙ 0

In this work we analyse a PDE-ODE problem modelling the evolution of a Glioblastoma, which includes an anisotropic nonlinear diffusion term with a diffusion velocity increasing with respect to vasculature. First, we prove the existence of global in time weak-strong solutions using a regularization technique via an artificial diffusion in the ODE-system and a fixed point argument. In addition, stability results of the critical points are given under some constraints on parameters. Finally, we design a fully discrete finite element scheme for the model which preserves the pointwise and energy estimates of the continuous problem.
