We are basically concerned with existence of standing pulse solutions for an elliptic equation with a nonlocal term. The problem comes from an activator-inhibitor system such as the FitzHugh-Nagumo equations with inhibitor's diffusion or arises in the Allen-Cahn equation with the nonlocal term. We prove it mathematically rigorously in a bounded domain Ω ⊂ Rn (n ≥ 2) with smooth boundary, by employing the Lyapunov-Schmidt reduction method, which is the same kind of way as used typically in [2], [9], [10], [13], for instance.
