Bistable Traveling Waves for  Monotone Discrete-time Recursive Systems Zhao, Xiaoqiang


There have been extensive investigations on monostable traveling waves and spreading speeds for various monotone evolution systems. In this talk,  I will introduce the general theory of bistable traveling waves (i.e., connecting two stable equilibria) for monotone discrete-time recursive systems. The developed theory establishes, for the first time, the relation between  monostable and bistable systems about their propagation phenomena. A dynamical systems approach to the global stability of such a wave will also be presented. As an application example,  I will further discuss an integrodifference  equation model of  two species competition in spatial ecology.
