Abstract

In this paper we consider a two-species competition model described by a reaction-diffusion system with nonlocal delays. In the case of a general domain, we study the stability of the equilibria of the system by using the energy function method. When the domain is one-dimensional and infinite, by employing linear chain techniques and geometric singular perturbation theory, we investigate the existence of travelling front solutions of the system.
