Qualitative analysis on positive steady-states for an autocatalytic reaction model in thermodynamics. (English) Zbl 1371.35084
Summary: In this paper, a reaction-diffusion system known as an autocatalytic reaction model is considered. The model is characterized by a system of two differential equations which describe a type of complex biochemical reaction. Firstly, some basic characterizations of steady-state solutions of the model are presented. And then, the stability of positive constant steady-state solution and the non-existence, existence of non-constant positive steady-state solutions are discussed. Meanwhile, the bifurcation solution which emanates from positive constant steady-state is investigated, and the global analysis to the system is given in one dimensional case. Finally, a few numerical examples are provided to illustrate some corresponding analytic results.
