We consider the problem of the long time dynamics for a diffuse interface model for tumor growth. The model describes the growth of a tumor surrounded by host tissues in the presence of a nutrient and consists in a Cahn-Hilliard-type equation for the tumor phase coupled with a reaction-diffusion equation for the nutrient concentration. We prove that, under physically motivated assumptions on parameters and data, the corresponding initial-boundary value problem generates a dissipative dynamical system that admits the global attractor in a proper phase space.

Abstract

We consider the problem of the long time dynamics for a diffuse interface model for tumor growth. The model describes the growth of a tumor surrounded by host tissues in the presence of a nutrient and consists in a Cahn-Hilliard-type equation for the tumor phase coupled with a reaction-diffusion equation for the nutrient concentration. We prove that, under physically motivated assumptions on parameters and data, the corresponding initial-boundary value problem generates a dissipative dynamical system that admits the global attractor in a proper phase space.
