Traffic Flow Dynamics.

This textbook provides a comprehensive and instructive coverage of vehicular traffic flow dynamics and modeling. It makes this fascinating interdisciplinary topic, which to date was only documented in parts by specialized monographs, accessible to a broad readership. Numerous figures and problems with solutions help the reader to quickly understand and practice the presented concepts. 503 pages with 194 illustrations (54 in color). More details...


Martin Treiber

received his Diploma and his Doctoral (Ph.D.) degree in Physics from Universität Bayreuth, Germany. He is lecturer at the Chair for Traffic Modeling and Econometrics at Technische Universität Dresden, Germany. His research interests include vehicular traffic dynamics and modeling, traffic data analysis and state estimation, and the study of macroeconomic impacts of motorized individual traffic.

Arne Kesting

received the Diploma degree in Physics from Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, and the Doctoral (Ph.D.) degree from Technische Universität Dresden, Germany, in 2002 and 2008, respectively. In 2009, he received the IEEE ITS Best Ph.D. Dissertation Award for the thesis entitled Microscopic Modeling of Human and Automated Driving: Towards Traffic-Adaptive Cruise Control. He is now with TomTom working as senior software engineer.


Traffic States. Empirical Examples of Traffic Dynamics.

The website illustrates the rich dynamics in space and time of traffic flow by means of empirical examples and an expansive searchable image database of real congestions. It demonstrates and explains the different characteristic types of traffic jams, the influencing factors for a traffic breakdown and if there is such a thing as a "phantom traffic jam".


Movsim.org. Multi-model open-source traffic simulator.

The open-source simulator written in Java implements various car-following models of different model categories like time-continuous models, iterated maps and cellular automata. MovSim is providing reference implementations for the models described in this textbook.
