Abstract

This paper is concerned with the existence of positive solutions for boundary value problems of nonlinear elliptic systems which arise in the study of the Lotka-Volterra prey-predator model with cross-diffusion. Making use of the theory of the fixed point index we can derive sufficient conditions for the coexistence of positive steady states. Moreover, when cross-diffusion effects are comparatively small, we can get a necessary and sufficient condition for the coexistence. The uniqueness result is also given in the special case when the spatial dimension is one.
