This paper is concerned with the elliptic system
$\begin{cases}-{\triangle u} = (q+1)u^qv^{p+1},~~ u>0~ in~ R^n,\\-{\triangle v} = (p+1)v^pu^{q+1},~~ v>0~in ~R^n,\end{cases}$
where
$ n ≥ 3 $
,
$ p,q>0 $
and
$ \max\{p,q\} ≥ 1 $
. We discuss the nonexistence of positive solutions in subcritical case and stable solutions in supercritical case, the necessary and sufficient conditions of classification in the critical case, and the Joseph-Lundgren-type condition for existence of local stable solutions.
