Members of a family of traveling wave solutions for a simple two-variable model of malignant invasion driven by haptotaxis are shown to have shocks (which satisfy an entropy condition) and to be computationally stable. By seeking traveling wave solutions, a PDE model, equivalent to three first order PDEs defined on the real space and time axes, may be reduced to an ordinary differential equation system, which can be studied in a two-dimensional phase plane. This phase plane is shown to contain… CONTINUE READING
