Separable transition density in the hybrid model for tumor-immune system competition.

*(English)*Zbl 1234.92026Summary: A hybrid model of the competition of tumor cells in the immune system is studied under suitable hypotheses. An explicit form for the equations is obtained in the case when the density function of the transition is expressed as the product of separable functions. A concrete application is given starting from a modified Lotka-Volterra system of equations.
