Coexistence and duality in competing species models

23 Nov 2018  ·  Chen Yu-Ting, Hammer Matthias ·

We discuss some stochastic spatial generalizations of the Lotka--Volterra model for competing species. The generalizations take the forms of spin systems on general discrete sets and interacting diffusions on integer lattices... Methods for proving coexistence in these generalizations and some related open questions are discussed. We use duality as the central point of view. It relates coexistence of the models to survival of their dual processes. read more
