### Abstract

We study entire solutions of a discrete diffusive equation with bistable nonlinearity. It is well known that there are three different wavefronts connecting any two of those three equilibria, say, 0, a, 1. We construct three different types of entire solutions. The first one is a solution which behaves as two opposite wavefronts (connecting 0 and 1) of the same positive speed approaching each other from both sides of the real line. The second one is a solution which behaves as two different wavefronts (connecting a and one of {0, 1}) approaching each other from both sides of the real line and converging to the wavefront connecting 0 and 1. The third one is a solution which behaves as a wavefront connecting a and 0 and a wavefront connecting 0 and 1 approaching each other from both sides of the real line.
