Keywords: parabolic equation, a priori estimates, generalized solution, quality functional, optimal control


The article deals with a parabolic model that describes the transport of drugs into the artery. The problem of existence and uniqueness of generalized solutions of the problem is investigated. Proof of theorems is based on a priori estimates obtained in negative norms. The problem of minimizing the quality functional based on the solutions of the mathematical model equation is solved.
