Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


We are interested in the traffic of cars on a network, like for instance a city. We describe traffic using hamilton-Jacobi equations, and propose new general junction conditions that can be fully characterized. In the framework of viscosity solutions for discontinuous hamiltonians,we also prove a comparison principle. With this powerful tool in hands, we show how to homogenize the traffic on a whole network like a city.
