Global stability in a chemostat with multiple nutrients

Authors: Patrick De Leenheer, Simon A. Levin, Eduardo D. Sontag and Christopher A. Klausmeier

We study a single species in a chemostat, limited by two nutrients, and separate nutrient uptake from growth. For a broad class of uptake and growth functions it is proved that a nontrivial equilibrium may exist. Moreover, if it exists it is unique and globally stable, generalizing a previous result by Legovi{\'c} and Cruzado.
