Abstract

We are concerned with a system of nonlinear partial differential equations modeling the Lotka–Volterra interactions of predators and preys in the presence of prey-taxis and spatial diffusion. The spatial and temporal variations of the predator’s velocity are determined by the prey gradient. We prove the existence of weak solutions by using Schauder fixed-point theorem and uniqueness via duality technique. The linearized stability around equilibrium is also studied. A finite volume scheme is build and numerical simulation show interesting phenomena of pattern formation.
