Title: Existence of non-negative solutions for predator-prey elliptic
systems with a sign-changing nonlinearity
Author: Jagmohan Tyagi (Indian Inst. of Tech., Gandhinagar, India)
Abstract:
By the method of monotone iteration and Schauder fixed point theorem,
we prove the existence of non-negative solutions to the system
$$\displaylines{
-\Delta u= \lambda a(x) f(v)\quad \hbox{in }\Omega,\cr
-\Delta v= \lambda b(x) g(u)\quad \hbox{in } \Omega,\cr
u =v=0\quad \hbox{on }\partial \Omega,
}$$
for $\lambda$ sufficiently small, where $\Omega$ is a bounded
domain in $\mathbb{R}^N$ with smooth boundary $\partial \Omega$
and $\lambda$ is a positive parameter. In this work, we allow
the sign changing nature of a and b with
$a(x) b(x)\leq 0, \forall x\in \bar{\Omega}$.
