Abstract

In this paper, we study a nonlinear coupled predator–prey diffusion system which widely exists in ecosystem. It is found that the self-diffusion and cross-diffusion do not change the stability of the semi-equilibrium point of the corresponding predator–prey system. However, the two kinds of diffusion play an important role on the positive equilibrium, in virtue of which Turing instability of the corresponding diffusion system either continues to exist or disappears and becomes stable. On the stationary patterns of the nonlinear coupled system, we find some interesting results which differ from the phenomenon found in corresponding diffusion system. Strong cross-diffusion can make the corresponding system generate stationary patterns. Finally, numerical simulation is also done to verify the existence of the effects of self-diffusion and cross-diffusion.
