Invasion Entire Solutions for a Three Species Competition-diffusion System
The purpose of this paper is to study a three species competition model with diffusion. It is well known that there exists a family of traveling wave solutions connecting two equilibria $(0,1,1)$ and $(1,0,0)$. In this paper, we first establish the exact asymptotic behavior of the traveling wave profiles at $\pm \infty$. Then, by constructing a pair of explicit upper and lower solutions via the combination of traveling wave solutions, we derive the existence of some new entire solutions which behave as two traveling fronts moving towards each other from both sides of $x$-axis. Such entire solution provides another invasion way of the stronger species to the weak ones.
