On neutral-delay two-species Lotka-Volterra competitive systems

  • Y. Kuang (a1)

Abstract

The qualitative behavior of positive solutions of the neutral-delay two-species Lotka-Volterra competitive system with several discrete delays is investigated. Sufficient conditions are obtained for the local asymptotic stability of the positive steady state. In fact, some of these sufficient conditions are also necessary except at those critical values. Results on the oscillatory and non-oscillatory characteristics of the positive solutions are also included.
