A Hopf bifurcation in an attraction-attraction chemotaxis system with global coupling

Main Article Content

YoonMee Ham


We consider a bistable attraction-attraction chemotaxis system with global coupling term. The study in this paper asserts that conditions for chemotactic coefficients for attraction and attraction and the global coupling constant to show existence of stationary solutions and Hopf bifurcation in the interfacial problem as the bifurcation parameters vary are obtained analytically.
