On traffic modeling and the Braess paradox

Presented by: 
Helge Holden Norwegian University of Science and Technology
Wednesday 16th August 2017 - 14:00 to 14:50
INI Seminar Room 2
We will discuss models for vehicular traffic flow on networks. The models include both the Lighthill-Whitham-Richards (LWR) model and Follow-the-Leader (FtL) models. The emphasis will be on the Braess paradox in which adding a road to a traffic network can make travel times worse for all drivers. In addition we will present a novel proof how FtL models approximate the LWR model in case of heavy traffic
