Abstract

Spatial segregation occurs in population dynamics when k species interact in a highly competitive way. As a model for the study of this phenomenon, we consider the competition-diffusion system of k differential equations in a domain D with appropriate boundary conditions. Any ui represents a population density and the parameter determines the interaction strength between the populations. The purpose of this paper is to study the geometry of the limiting configuration on a planar domain for any number of species. If k is even we show that some limiting configurations are strictly connected to the solution of a Dirichlet problem for the Laplace equation.
