On the well-posedness of a nonlinear hierarchical size-structured population model

Yan Liu, Ze-Rong He

Abstract


We analyse a nonlinear hierarchical size-structured population model with time-dependent individual vital rates. The existence and uniqueness of nonnegative solutions to the model are shown via a comparison principle. Our investigation extends some results in the literature.
