Analysis on stability and non-existence of equilibrium for a general chemical reaction. (English) Zbl 1413.35262
Summary: This paper is concerned with a general chemical reaction model with respect to Neumann boundary condition. The stability of positive equilibrium and the non-existence of non-constant positive solution are discussed rigorously, respectively in Case 1: \(f(u)>0\) and \(f_u(u)<0\) for \(u>0\) and Case 2: \(f(0)=0\) and \(f_u(u)>0\) for \(u>0\). The techniques include the spectrum analysis of operators, the maximal principle, the upper and lower solution method and the implicit function theorem.
