This paper is concerned with the invasion traveling wave solutions of a Lotka-Volterra type competition system with nonlocal dispersal, the purpose of which is to formulate the dynamics between the resident and the invader. By constructing upper and lower solutions and passing to a limit function, the existence of traveling wave solutions is obtained if the wave speed is not less than a threshold. When the wave speed is smaller than the threshold, the nonexistence of invasion traveling wave solutions is proved by the theory of asymptotic spreading.
