We study positive solutions to steady state reaction diffusion equations of the form:
$ \begin{equation*} \; \; \begin{matrix} -\Delta u = \lambda f(u);\; \Omega \\ \; \; \alpha(u)\frac{\partial u}{\partial \eta}+\gamma\sqrt{\lambda}[1-\alpha(u)]u = 0; \; \partial \Omega\end{matrix} \end{equation*} $
where
$ u $
is the population density,
$ f(u) = \frac{1}{a}u(u+a)(1-u) $
represents a weak Allee effect type growth of the population with
$ a\in (0,1) $
,
$ \alpha(u) $
is the probability of the population staying in the habitat
$ \Omega $
when it reaches the boundary, and positive parameters
$ \lambda $
and
$ \gamma $
represent the domain scaling and effective exterior matrix hostility, respectively. In particular, we analyze the case when
$ \alpha(s) = \frac{1}{[1+(A - s)^2 + \epsilon]} $
for all
$ s \in [0,1] $
, where
$ A\in (0,1) $
and
$ \epsilon\geq 0 $
. In this case
$ 1-\alpha(s) $
represents a U-shaped relationship between density and emigration. Existence, nonexistence, and multiplicity results for this model are established via the method of sub-super solutions.
