Abstract We establish the well-posedness of an initial-boundary value problem for a general class of linear time-fractional, advection-diffusion-reaction equations, allowing space- and time-dependent coefficients as well as initial data that may have low regularity. Our analysis relies on novel energy methods in combination with a fractional Gronwall inequality and properties of fractional integrals.
