Abstract

The aim of the paper is to provide conditions ensuring the existence of non-trivial non-negative periodic solutions to a system of doubly degenerate parabolic equations containing delayed nonlocal terms and satisfying Dirichlet boundary conditions. The employed approach is based on the theory of the Leray-Schauder topological degree theory, thus a crucial purpose of the paper is to obtain a priori bounds in a convenient functional space, here $L^2(Q_T)$, on the solutions of certain homotopies. This is achieved under different assumptions on the sign of the kernels of the nonlocal terms. The considered system is a possible model of the interactions between two biological species sharing the same territory where such interactions are modeled by the kernels of the nonlocal terms. To this regard the obtained results can be viewed as coexistence results of the two biological populations under different intra and inter specific interferences on their natural growth rates.
