  • We prove Liouville-type theorem for semilinear parabolic system of the form $u_t-\Delta u =a_{11}u^{p}+a_{12} u^rv^{s+1}$, $v_t-\Delta v =a_{21} u^{r+1}v^{s}+a_{22}v^{p}$ where $r, s>0$, $p=r+s+1$. The real matrix $A=(a_{ij})$ satisfies conditions $ a_{12}, a_{21}\geq 0$ and $a_{11}, a_{22}>0$. This paper is a continuation of Phan-Souplet (Math. Ann., 366,1561-1585,2016) where the authors considered the special case $s=r$ for the system of $m$ components. Our tool for the proof of Liouville-type theorem is a refinement of Phan-Souplet, which is based on Gidas-Spruck (Commun. Pure Appl.Math. 34,525–598 1981) and Bidaut-Véron (Équations aux dérivées partielles et applications. Elsevier, Paris, pp 189–198,1998).
