Download (2062Kb)


    In this masters thesis we analyze the movement of vehicles on a one lane road using a mathematical model. Our traffic model will depend on two quantities: velocity field and traffic density. Using a conservation law, we derive the traffic equation. The traffic equation is a quasilinear partial differential equation that we can solve using the method of characteristics. In the last part of the thesis, we study a few examples of different traffic situations.
