This paper deals with a predator-prey model with Beddington-DeAngelis functional response under homogeneous Neumann boundary conditions. We mainly discuss the following three problems: (1) stability of the nonnegative constant steady states for the reaction-diffusion system; (2) the existence of Turing patterns; (3) the existence of stationary patterns created by cross-diffusion.
