Long time behavior of a tumor-immune system competition model perturbed by environmental noise


This paper investigates the long time behavior of tumor cells evolution in a tumor-immune system competition model perturbed by environmental noise. Sufficient conditions for extinction, stochastic persistence, and strong persistence in the mean of tumor cells are derived by constructing Lyapunov functions.

The study results show that environmental noise can accelerate the extinction of tumor cells under immune surveillance of effector cells, which means that noise is favorable for the extinction of tumor in this condition. Finally, numerical simulations are introduced to support our results.
