Our research interests are in steady state reaction diffusion equations and systems that arise in nonlinear heat generation, combustion theory, chemical reactor theory and population dynamics. In particular, we are interested in existence, multiplicity, uniqueness and bifurcation results for positive steady states for various classes of reactions processes.(More)
