Based on the classic Lotlk-Volterra cooperation model, we establish a time-delay model of which a species cannot survive independently. By continuation theorem, we discuss existence of positive periodic solutions of the model.
The plants can survive independently and insect pollination can improve the growth rate of plants in  and . According to this phenomenon, based on the classical Lotka-Volterra model, we establish a model of two populations of Lotka-Volterra which cannot survive independently, finally he analyzes the stability of the model.
There is still less research work of the model which cannot exist independently. The existing researches basically are the autonomous models (see  and ). In this paper, we establish a Lotka-Volterra model with time delay which a species cannot survive independently. The main aim is to discuss existence of periodic positive solution for the model.
Suppose that there are two plant populations (A and B) living in their natural environment, which are free from other interference factor. Let and are the population density of plant A and plant B,
are continuous functions with periodic, and. The constants
are stimulations of living environment. By the thought of -, we could have got the following Lotka-Volterra model with time delay which a species cannot survive independently.
The main aim of the paper is to discuss existence of periodic positive solution for the model.
2. Lemma 1 and Lemma 2
Assume X and Z are normed vector space, and are linear mappings. If L is Fredholm mapping which Zero is index, and there are continuous projection and, such that and, we can get that is reversible. If Inverse mapping is tight, we call N is tight on.
Lemma 1 (Continuation theorem)  Let L be the mapping of Fredholm with zero index, collection N is tight on collection. Suppose the following: for any, the solution of equation; for any and. Then, there is at least a solution for on.
Lemma 2 is positive invariant set of model (1).
Proof: By formula (2), we have
Since formula (2) is always true for, lemma 2 is proved.
For the convenience of discuss, we give following notations.
, , ,.
3. Existence of Periodic Solutions
In order to apply Continuation theorem to system (3), we define
then X, Z is Banach space under the norm (see  and ).
Let, , the Equation (1) can be turns into
Since is periodic, we know that
are continuous function with the periodicity.
Let, , , for, , for, then, is closed set in set Z,
, and P, QP and Q is the continuous projection, such that,. Thus there is the inverse mapping of L and
So that we get
It is obvious that and is continuous.
We assume that is bounded open set. It is obvious that is bounded. We have that is compact set by Arzela-Ascoli theorem, so we get N is L-tight on.
The corresponding operator equation is with，we have the following formula
We assume that is the solution for system (4) with，by integral we get the following formula (5)
To move term from one side of an algebraic equation to the other side, reversing its sign to maintain equality, we get the following
From formula (5), formula (6) and formula (7), we have
From formula (8) and formula (9) we can get
From formula (10) and formula (11) we get
Similarly, we have
Using formula (7) we get
Similarly, we have
From formula (8) and formula (13) we get
From formula (9) and formula (12) we get
Since, it exists, such that
By formula (12), formula (13) and formula (14), we get
It is obvious that has nothing with choose of. Thus the following formula (15) has a unique positive solution.
Let, where is sufficiently large and
. Then, , then satisfying the first
condition for Lemma 1. When,
So that, satisfying all the conditions for Lemma 1. We have that there is at least a solution with on from Lemma 1.
Let, , when, is positive periodic solution for system (1) which the length of. Hence, there is at least a positive periodic solution for system (1).
Theorem If, then is a positive periodic solution for system (1). In other word, there is at least one positive periodic solution for system (1).
