ABSTRACT For spatial dynamics of a single-species population with age-structure and spatial diffusion such as the Australian blowflies population distribution, a class of time-delayed reaction-diffusion equations with nonlocal nonlinearity abounds in the literature. For such a class of (nonlocal time-delayed reaction-diffusion) equations, the authors prove that all noncritical wavefronts are globally exponentially stable, and critical wavefronts are globally algebraically stable when the initial perturbations around the wavefront decay to zero exponentially near the negative infinity regardless of the magnitude of time delay. Their approach is based on the combination of the weighted energy method and the Green function technique. The study improves and develops the existing stability results for local and nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations with delays. An erratum to this study to fix the gap in the proof of Lemma 3.8 is provided online at

    ABSTRACT: This paper is concerned with the following reaction-diffusion equation u t =D(x)u xx -d(x,u)+∫ R Γ(τ,x,y)b(y,u(t-τ,y))dy and u(θ,x)=u 0 (θ,x), θ∈[-τ,0]· The functions D,d and b are L-periodic and the kernel Γ>0 satisfies 0<∫ ℝ Γ(τ,x,y)dy≤1 and Γ(τ,·,·) is L-periodic. The approach relies on the functional analysis of the principal value of the nonlocal linear operator generated around the wavefronts. It is shown that all noncritical wavefronts are globally exponentially stable provided the initial perturbation is uniformly bounded in a weighted space. Some generalizations to the n-dimensional space are also presented with many applications.

    ABSTRACT: We study the asymptotic stability of traveling fronts and front's velocity selection problem for the time-delayed monostable equation $(*)$ $u_{t}(t,x) = u_{xx}(t,x) - u(t,x) + g(u(t-h,x)),\ x \in \mathbb{R},\ t >0$, considered with Lipschitz continuous reaction term $g: \mathbb{R}_+ \to \mathbb{R}_+$. We are also assuming that $g$ is $C^{1,\alpha}$-smooth in some neighbourhood of the equilibria $0$ and $\kappa >0$ to $(*)$. In difference with the previous works, we do not impose any convexity or subtangency condition on the graph of $g$ so that equation $(*)$ can possess pushed traveling fronts. Our first main result says that the non-critical wavefronts of $(*)$ with monotone $g$ are globally nonlinearly stable. In the special and easier case when the Lipschitz constant for $g$ coincides with $g'(0)$, we present a series of results concerning the exponential [asymptotic] stability of non-critical [respectively, critical] fronts for the monostable model $(*)$. As an application, we present a criterion of the absolute global stability of non-critical wavefronts to the diffusive Nicholson's blowflies equation.

    ABSTRACT: This paper is concerned with the traveling wave solutions of a diffusive SIR system with nonlocal delay. We obtain the existence and nonexistence of traveling wave solutions, which formulate the propagation of disease without outbreak threshold. Moreover, it is proved that at any fixed moment, the faster the disease spreads, the more the infected individuals, and the larger the recovery/remove ratio is, the less the infected individuals.
