Permanence of predator-prey system with infinite delay. (English) Zbl 1056.92050

From the paper: We consider a predator-prey system with periodic coefficients and infinite delay, in which the prey has a history that takes them through two stages, immature and mature. The system is given by: \[ \dot x_1=a(t)x_2-b(t)x_1- d(t)x^2_1-p(t)x_1\int^0_{-\infty}k_{12} (s)y(t-s)ds, \]
\[ \dot x_2=c(t)x_1-f(t) x^2_2,\tag{1} \]
\[ \dot y=y\left[-g(t)+h(t)\int^0_{-\infty}k_{21}(s)x_1(t+s) ds-q(t)\int^0_{-\infty} k_{22} (s)y(t+s)ds\right], \] where \(x_1\) and \(x_2\) denote the density of immature and mature populations, A(prey), respectively, and \(y\) is the density of the predator B that preys on \(x_1\). The coefficients are all \(\omega\)-periodic and continuous for \(t\geq 0\), \(a(t)\), \(b(t)\), \(c(t)\), \(d(t)\) and \(f(t)\) are all positive, \(p(t)\), \(h(t)\) and \(q(t)\) are nonnegative, and \(\int^\omega_0 q(t)dt>0\), \(\int^\omega_0g(t)dt\geq 0\). The functions \(k_{ij}(s)\) \((i,j=1,2)\) defined on \(\mathbb{R}_-=(-\infty,0]\) are nonnegative and integrable, \(\int^0_{-\infty}k_{ij}(s)=1\).
We provide a sufficient and necessary condition to guarantee the permanence of the system. The system has a positive periodic solution under this condition. Some known results are extended to the delay case.
