Stability and Hopf bifurcation for a delay competition diffusion system. (English) Zbl 1038.35147

Summary: This paper investigates the stability and Hopf bifurcation of a delay competition diffusion system. Firstly we discuss the existence and stability of the corresponding steady state solutions. Secondly our purpose is to give more detail information about the Hopf bifurcation of this system. We derive the basis of the eigenfunction subspace and then convert the existence of periodic solutions to the study of the existence of the implicit function. Finally, we analyze the stability of the periodic solutions by reducing the original system on the center manifold.
