An Isaac Newton Institute Workshop

Non-Equilibrium Dynamics of Interacting Particle Systems

Modelling of traffic flow and related transport problems

3rd April 2006

Author: Schadschneider, A (University of Köln)


In this series of lectures the basic empirical properties and theoretical modelling approaches for various traffic systems will be reviewed. The list of topics includes: 1) Empirical traffic data and their interpretation 2) Modelling approaches for highway traffic (hydrodynamic models, car-following models, etc.) 3) Cellular automata models of highway traffic (ASEP, Nagel-Schreckenberg model and their extensions) 4) Pedestrian dynamics 5) Transport in biological systems (ant trails, intracellular transport, etc)
