Traveling waves in a three species competition-cooperation system

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Related Papers Cited by
  • This paper studies the traveling wave solutions to a three species competition cooperation system, which is derived from a spatially averaged and temporally delayed Lotka Volterra system. The existence of the traveling waves is investigated via a new type of monotone iteration method. The upper and lower solutions come from either the waves of KPP equation or those of certain two species Lotka Volterra system. We also derive the asymptotics and uniqueness of the wave solutions.
