Modelling of traffic flow and related transport problems: Lecture III

Friday 7th April 2006 - 10:00 to 11:00
INI Seminar Room 1

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)
