We consider a nonlinear model for age-dependent population
dynamics subject to a density dependent factor which regulates
the selection of newborn at age zero.
The initial-boundary value problem is studied
using a vanishing viscosity method (in the age direction) together
with the fixed point theory. Existence and uniqueness are
obtained, and also the positivity of the solution to the problem.
