Qualitative analysis of stationary Keller-Segel chemotaxis models with logistic growth

17 Apr 2016  ·  Wang Qi, Yan Jingda, Gai Chunyi ·

We study the stationary Keller--Segel chemotaxis models with logistic cellular growth over a one-dimensional region subject to the Neumann boundary condition. We show that nonconstant solutions emerge in the sense of Turing's instability as the chemotaxis rate $\chi$ surpasses a threshold number... By taking the chemotaxis rate as the bifurcation parameter, we carry out bifurcation analysis on the system to obtain the explicit formulas of bifurcation values and small amplitude nonconstant positive solutions. Moreover we show that solutions stay strictly positive in the continuum of each branch. The stabilities of these steady state solutions are well studied when the creation and degradation rate of the chemical is assumed to be a linear function. Finally we investigate the asymptotic behaviors of the monotone steady states. We construct solutions with interesting patterns such as a boundary spike when the chemotaxis rate is large enough and/or the cell motility is small. read more
