Stability and traveling waves in a Beddington-DeAngelis type stage-structured predator-prey reaction-diffusion systems with nonlocal delays and harvesting
The goal of this paper is to study the stability and traveling waves of stage-structured predator-prey reaction-diffusion systems of Beddington-DeAngelis functional response with both nonlocal delays and harvesting. By analyzing the corresponding characteristic equations, the local stability of various equilibria is discussed.
We reduce the existence of traveling waves to the existence of a pair of upper-lower solutions by using the cross iteration method and the Schauderís fixed point theorem. The existence of traveling waves connecting the zero equilibrium and the positive equilibrium is then established by constructing a pair of upper-lower solutions.MSC: 35K57, 92D25.
