Dynamics Behaviors of a Reaction-Diffusion Predator-Prey System with Beddington-DeAngelis Functional Response and Delay


This paper is concerned with the existence of traveling wave solutions in a reaction-diffusion predator-prey system with Beddington-DeAngelis functional response and a discrete time delay. By introducing a partial quasi-monotonicity condition and constructing a pair of upper-lower solutions, we establish the existence of traveling wave solutions. Moreover, a numerical simulation is carried out to illustrate the theoretical results.
