Long run coexistence in the chemostat with multiple species

Abstract : In this work we analyze the transient behavior of the dynamics of multiple species competing in a chemostat for a single resource, presenting slow/fast characteristics.We prove that coexistence among a subset of species, with growth functions close to each other, can last for a substantially long time. For these cases, we also show that the proportion of non-dominant species can be increasing before decreasing, under certain conditions on the initial distribution.
