Traffic Flow

Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 56)

Although the underlying physics of each of these is quite different they all involve the movement of objects along what is effectively a one-dimensional pathway. We will take advantage of this when developing a mathematical model for the motion, but before doing so we must first decide on how to account for the spatial and temporal variables.
