Boundary Value Problems volume 2019, Article number: 36 (2019)
Abstract
In this paper, we put up and study a competition and cooperation model of two enterprises with multiple delays and feedback controls. A set of sufficient conditions which ensure the existence of periodic solution of the twoenterprise competition and cooperation model with multiple delays and feedback controls are established by applying the fixed point theorem of strictsetcontraction. An example is given to check the obtained theoretical findings. The derived results are completely new and complement earlier publications.
Introduction
It is well known that the interaction between two enterprises plays an extremely important role in enterprise operation. In order to grasp the internal mechanism, operating law, administrative procedure, risk and efficiency, etc. [1], to improve the management level of enterprises, it is necessary for us to establish the interaction model of two enterprises and analyze their dynamical behavior. In recent decades, some scholars have considered this topic. For example, Tian and Nie [2] proposed the following twoenterprise interaction model:
where \(u_{1}(t)\), \(u_{2}(t)\) denote the output of enterprises A and B, \(\gamma_{1}\), \(\gamma_{2}\) stand for the intrinsic growth rate, \(\kappa_{i}\) (\(i=1,2\)) represents the carrying capacity of mark under natural unlimited conditions, a, b denote the competitive coefficients of two enterprises, \(\sigma_{1}\), \(\sigma_{2}\) represent the initial production of two enterprises. Let \(\alpha_{1}=\frac{\gamma_{1}}{\kappa_{1}}\), \(\alpha_{2}=\frac{\gamma_{2}}{\kappa_{2}}\), \(\beta_{1}=\frac{\gamma _{1}a}{\kappa_{2}}\), \(\beta_{2}=\frac{\gamma_{2}b}{\kappa_{1}}\), then system (1.1) becomes
Considering that the parameters of (1.2) vary with time, Li and Zhang [1] established the following modified twoenterprise interaction model with variable coefficients:
In 2012, Xu [3] established some sufficient criteria to guarantee the existence of periodic solutions of (1.3) by using the coincidence degree method and differential inequality technique. In many cases, the environment often varies and the output of two enterprises is subjected to rapid change at certain instants in time. Xu and Shao [4] established the following twoenterprise interaction model with impulses:
where \(\Delta_{i}(t_{k})=u_{i}(t_{k}^{+})u_{i}(t_{k}^{})\) are the impulses at moments \(t_{k}\) and \(t_{1} < t_{2} < \cdots\) is a strictly increasing sequence such that \(\lim_{k\rightarrow+\infty}t_{k} =+\infty\) and q is a positive integer. Using continuation theorem and constructing an appropriate Lyapunov functional, Xu and Shao [4] discussed the periodic solution and global attractivity of (1.4). Considering the different effect of time delay on the twoenterprise interaction, Liao et al. [5] investigated the stability and Hopf bifurcation of the following twoenterprise interaction model with delays:
where υ is the time delay in the interior of enterprises and among different enterprises. In 2014, Liao et al. [6] studied the bifurcation behavior of the following twoenterprise interaction model with two different delays:
where \(\upsilon_{i}\) (\(i=1,2\)) is the time delay in the interior of enterprises and among different enterprises. Li et al. [7] considered the stability and bifurcation behavior of the following twoenterprise interaction model with four different delays:
where \(\upsilon_{i}\) (\(i=1,2,3,4\)) is the time delay in the interior of enterprises and among different enterprises. For more related works, we refer the readers to [8,9,10,11]. Here we would like to point out that the output of enterprises A and B is often affected by unpredictable forces which can be expressed as disturbance functions [12,13,14,15,16]. In addition, there usually exists a time delay in unpredictable forces. Stimulated by this viewpoint, we can establish the following competition and cooperation model of two enterprises with multiple delays and feedback controls:
where \(v_{1}\), \(v_{2}\) are the control variables. The existence of periodic solution of the competition and cooperation model of two enterprises plays an important role in running mechanism, administering process, economic performance of enterprises. Thus the study on the existence of periodic solution of the competition and cooperation model of two enterprises has theoretical significance and practical application [17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36]. The main objective of this paper is to focus on the periodic solutions of model (1.8).
The remainder of the paper is organized as follows: in Sect. 2, basic notations, assumptions, definitions, and lemmas are prepared. In Sect. 3, a set of sufficient conditions which ensure the existence of periodic solution of the system are established. In Sect. 4, an example with its simulations is given to illustrate the correctness of the obtained results in Sect. 3. A simple conclusion is given in Sect. 5.
Preliminaries
In this section, we shall first state some notations, assumptions, definitions, and lemmas.
Let R and \(R^{+}\) denote the sets of all real numbers and nonnegative real numbers, respectively. Let \(\bar{l}=\max\{l(t):t\in [0,\varpi]\}\) and \(\underline{l}=\min\{l(t):t\in[0,\varpi]\}\), where l is a continuous bounded ϖperiodic function on R.
Throughout this paper, we give the following assumptions:

(H1)
For \(i=1,2\), \(\gamma_{i}\), \(\alpha_{i}\), \(\beta_{i}\), \(\sigma _{i}\), \(a_{i}\), \(\eta_{i}\), \(\delta_{i}\), \(\varrho_{1}\), \(\zeta_{i}\) are all continuous ϖperiodic functions and
$$\begin{aligned}& \delta_{i}^{*}=e^{\int_{0}^{\varpi}\delta_{i}(s)\,ds}>1, \quad\quad \gamma_{i*}=e^{\int_{0}^{\varpi}\gamma_{i}(s)\,ds}< 1, \\& A_{i}(t,s)=\frac{e^{\int_{t}^{s}\delta_{i}(s)\,ds} }{ e^{\int_{0}^{\varpi}\delta_{i}(s)\,ds}1 },\quad\quad B_{i}(t,s)= \frac{e^{\int_{t}^{s}\gamma_{i}(s)\,ds} }{ 1e^{\int_{0}^{\varpi}\gamma_{i}(s)\,ds} }, \\& G_{i}(t)= \int_{t}^{t+\varpi}A_{i}(t,s) \varrho_{i}(s) \,ds, \\& K_{i}= \int_{0}^{\varpi}\bigl[\gamma_{i*} \alpha_{i}(s) +\gamma_{i*}\beta_{i}(s) \Vert u \Vert +\gamma _{i*}a_{i}(s)G_{i}\bigl(s \eta_{i}(s)\bigr)\bigr]\,ds, \\& P_{i}= \int_{0}^{\varpi}\bigl[\alpha_{i}(s) + \beta_{i}(s) \Vert u \Vert +a_{i}(s)G_{i} \bigl(s\eta_{1}(s)\bigr)\bigr]\,ds. \end{aligned}$$ 
(H2)
The following inequalities hold:
$$\begin{aligned} &\alpha_{1}(t)\gamma_{1*} \Vert u \Vert + \beta_{1}(t)\gamma_{2*} \Vert u \Vert ^{2}+2 \beta_{1}(t)\sigma_{2}(t)\gamma_{2*} \Vert u \Vert \\ &\quad{} + \beta_{1}(t)\sigma_{2}^{2}(t)+ \gamma_{1*}a_{1}(t)G_{1}\bigl(t\eta _{1}(t)\bigr) \Vert u \Vert \geq0 \end{aligned} $$and
$$\alpha_{2}(t)\gamma_{2*} \Vert u \Vert +\gamma _{2*}a_{2}(t)G_{2}\bigl(t\eta_{2}(t) \bigr) \Vert u \Vert \geq0. $$ 
(H3)
For \(i=1,2\), the following inequality holds:
$$\frac{(1+\underline{\gamma}_{i*})(\gamma_{i*})^{2}}{1\gamma _{i*}}K_{i}\geq\max\bigl\{ \alpha_{i}(s) + \beta_{i}(s) \Vert u \Vert +a_{i}(s)G_{i} \bigl(s\eta_{1}(s)\bigr), t\in [0,\varpi]\bigr\} . $$ 
(H4)
For \(i=1,2\), the following inequality holds:
$$\frac{1\bar{\gamma}_{i*}}{\gamma_{i*}(1\gamma_{i*})}P_{i}\leq \min\bigl\{ \gamma_{i*} \alpha_{i}(t) +\gamma_{i*}\beta_{i}(t) \Vert u \Vert +\gamma _{i*}a_{i}(t)G_{i}\bigl(t \eta_{i}(t)\bigr), t\in [0,\varpi]\bigr\} . $$
Definition 2.1
Let B be a Banach space and C be a closed, nonempty subset of B. We say that C is a cone if (1) \(a\alpha+b\beta\in\mathbf{C}\) for all \(\alpha,\beta\in\mathbf{C}\) and all \(a,b>0\), (2) \(\alpha,\alpha\in \mathbf{C}\) imply \(\alpha=0\).
Let B be a Banach space and C be a cone in B. The semiorder induced by the cone C is denoted by “≤”, i.e., \(\alpha\leq\beta\) if and only if \(\beta\alpha\in\mathbf{C}\). For a bounded subset \(\mathbf{E}\subset\mathbf{B}\), let \(a_{\mathbf{B}}(\mathbf{E})\) denote the measure (Kuratowski) of noncompactness defined by
where \(\operatorname{diam} (\mathbf{B}_{i})\) represents the diameter of the set \(\mathbf{B}_{i}\).
Definition 2.2
Let C, D be two Banach spaces and \(\mathbf{F} \subset\mathbf{C}\), a continuous and bounded map \(\varGamma: \mathbf{F}\rightarrow\mathbf{D}\) is called κsetcontractive if for any bounded set \(\mathbf{S}\subset \mathbf{F}\) we get \(a_{\mathbf{D}}(\varGamma({\mathbf{S}}))\leq {\kappa} a_{\mathbf{C}}(\mathbf{S})\). Γ is called strictsetcontractive if it is κsetcontractive for some \(0\leq\kappa\leq1\).
Lemma 2.1
Let Q be a cone of the real Banach space B and \(\varOmega_{R_{1}}=\{x\in{\mathbf{B}}:\Vert x\Vert< R_{1} \}\), \(\varOmega_{R_{2}}=\{x\in{\mathbf{B}}:\Vert x\Vert< R_{2} \}\), where \(R_{1}>R_{2}>0\). Assume that \(\varGamma:{\mathbf{Q}}\cap\bar{\varOmega}_{R_{1}} \setminus\varOmega_{R_{2}}\rightarrow\mathbf{Q}\) is strictsetcontractive such that one of the following two conditions are satisfied: (1) Not \(\varGamma x\geq x\) for all \(x\in {\mathbf{Q}}\cap \partial\varOmega_{R_{2}}\). (2) Not \(\varGamma x\leq x\) for all \(x\in {\mathbf{Q}}\cap \partial\varOmega_{R_{1}}\). Then Γ has at least one fixed point in \({\mathbf{Q}}\cap\bar{\varOmega}_{R_{1}} \setminus\varOmega_{R_{2}}\).
Existence of periodic solution
In this section, we will consider the existence of at least one positive periodic solution of system (1.8) by applying the fixed point theorem for the strictsetcontraction.
It is easy to see that each ϖperiodic solution of the equation
is equivalent to that of the equation
and each ϖperiodic solution of the equation
is equivalent to that of the equation
Then the existence of ϖperiodic solution of (1.8) can be equivalent to the existence of ϖperiodic solution of the following equations:
Let
with the norm \(\Vert u\Vert=\max\{\vert u_{i}(t)\vert:t\in[0,\varpi ], i=1,2\}\). Then \(C_{\varpi}\) is a Banach space. Let
Let
where \(R_{1}>R_{2}>0\). Define the map Γ as follows:
where
Lemma 3.1
In addition to (H1)–(H3), assume that \(\bar{\gamma}_{i}<1\) (\(i=1,2\)) holds, then \(\varGamma:{\mathbf{Q}}\rightarrow{\mathbf{Q}}\) is well defined.
Proof
\(\forall u\in{\mathbf{Q}}\) we have \(\varGamma u\in C_{\varpi}\). In view of (H2), for \(t\in[0,\varpi]\), we have
In addition, for \(t\in[0,\varpi]\),
Then, for \(t\in[0,\varpi]\), we have
By (3.10) and (3.11), we get \(\varGamma u\in{\mathbf{Q}}\). The proof of Lemma 3.1 is complete. □
Lemma 3.2
In addition to (H1)–(H3), if \(\kappa=\max_{i=1,2} \{\frac{R_{1}^{2}}{1\gamma_{i*}}[2\alpha _{1}(s)+3\beta_{1}(s)R_{1}] \}<1\), then \(\varGamma:{\mathbf{Q}}\cap\bar{\varOmega}_{R_{1}} \setminus\varOmega_{R_{2}}\rightarrow\mathbf{Q}\) is strictsetcontractive.
Proof
Obviously, Γ is continuous and bounded. Now we prove that \(a_{C_{\varpi}}(\varGamma({\mathbf{S}}))\leq{\kappa} a_{\mathbf{C}}(\mathbf{S})\) for any bounded set \({\mathbf{S}}\subset{\mathbf{Q}}\cap\bar{\varOmega}_{R_{1}}\). For any \(\epsilon>0\), there is a finite family of subsets \({\mathbf{S}}\subset\bigcup_{i}{\mathbf{S}}_{i}\) with \(\operatorname{diam} ({\mathbf{S}}_{i})\leq\epsilon\). Then \(\Vert uv\Vert\leq\epsilon\) for any \(u,v\in{\mathbf{S}}_{i}\). For \(t\in[0,\varpi]\), we have
In view of (3.12) and (3.13), we have
Then \(\varGamma:{\mathbf{Q}}\cap\bar{\varOmega}_{R_{1}} \setminus\varOmega_{R_{2}}\rightarrow\mathbf{Q}\) is strictsetcontractive. This completes the proof. □
Theorem 3.1
In addition to (H1)–(H3), if \(\kappa=\max_{i=1,2} \{\frac{R_{1}^{2}}{1\gamma_{i*}}[2\alpha _{1}(s)+3\beta_{1}(s)R_{1}] \}<1\), then system (1.8) has at least one positive ϖperiodic solution.
Proof
Let
and
Clearly \(R_{1}>R_{2}>0\). In view of Lemmas 3.1 and 3.2, we get \(\varGamma:{\mathbf{Q}}\cap\bar{\varOmega}_{R_{1}} \setminus\varOmega_{R_{2}}\rightarrow\mathbf{Q}\) is strictsetcontractive. If \(u^{*}\in{\mathbf{Q}}\cap\partial\varOmega_{R_{2}}\) or \(u^{*}\in{\mathbf{Q}}\cap\partial\varOmega_{R_{1}}\) such that \(\varGamma u^{*}=u^{*}\), then system (1.8) has at least one positive ϖperiodic solution. Now we check that (ii) of Lemma 2.1 is true.
If \(\varGamma u\geq u\), then \(\varGamma uu\in{\mathbf{Q}}\). Thus \(\varGamma u_{1}u_{1}\geq\gamma_{1*}\Vert\varGamma u_{1}u_{1}\Vert\geq0\) for \(t\in[0,\varpi]\). In addition,
Then
which is a contradiction. Next we only need to check that for \(u\in{\mathbf{Q}}\cap\partial\varOmega_{R_{1}}\), Not \(\varGamma u\leq u\). If there exists \(u\in{\mathbf{Q}}\cap\partial\varOmega_{R_{1}}\) such that \(\varGamma u>u\), then \(\varGamma uu\in{\mathbf{Q}}\setminus\{0\}\). For \(t\in[0,\varpi]\), one has
Thus
Then \(\Vert u\Vert>\Vert\varGamma u\Vert>R_{1}\), which is a contradiction. By Lemma 3.1, we can conclude that Γ has at least one nonzero fixed point in \({\mathbf{Q}}\cap\bar{\varOmega}_{R_{1}} \setminus\varOmega_{R_{2}}\). Therefore system (1.8) has at least one positive ϖperiodic solution. This completes the proof. □
Examples
In this section, we give two examples with their numerical simulations to illustrate the feasibility of our results.
Example 4.1
Consider the following system:
where \(\gamma_{1}(t)=1\), \(\gamma_{2}(t)=2\), \(\delta_{1}(t)=0.5\), \(\delta_{2}(t)=0.8\), \(\alpha_{1}(t)=0.8\vert\sin\pi t\vert\), \(\alpha_{2}(t)=0.3\vert\cos\pi t\vert\), \(\beta_{1}(t)=0.7\vert\sin \pi t\vert\), \(\beta_{2}(t)=0.9\vert\sin\pi t\vert\), \(\sigma _{1}(t)=0.2\vert\cos\pi t\vert\), \(\sigma_{2}(t)=0.5\vert\cos\pi t\vert\), \(\eta_{1}(t)=0.4\vert\cos \pi t\vert\), \(\eta_{2}(t)=0.4\vert\cos\pi t\vert\), \(\varrho_{1}(t)=0.7\vert \sin\pi t\vert\). Thus one can check that all the conditions in Theorem 3.1 are fulfilled. Then we can conclude that system (1.8) has at least one positive 1periodic solution which is shown in Figs. 1–4.
Conclusions
In the present paper, we propose a competition and cooperation model of two enterprises with multiple delays and feedback controls. Applying fixed point theorem of strictsetcontraction, we obtain a sufficient criterion to guarantee the existence of periodic solution of the twoenterprise competition and cooperation model with multiple delays and feedback controls. It is shown that the feedback control terms and time delays have important effect on the periodic behavior. The research reveals that under fairish conditions, the competition of two species can remain a periodic vibration. The derived results are new and complement the earlier publications (for example, [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9]). In recent years, there have been rare reports on the competition and cooperation model of two enterprises with stochastic perturbation, which might be our future investigation topic.
