Colloquium Lectures

On traffic modeling and the Braess paradox
Speaker: Prof. Helge Holden (Norwegian University of Science and Technology)

Time: 10h15, Friday, December 1, 2017
Venue: Grand Hall, Building A6, Institute of Mathematics, VAST, 18 Hoang Quoc Viet, Cau Giay, Ha Noi.
Abstract: 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.
