Traffic Dynamics and Simulation (Master) SS 2022

(former lecture "Verkehrsdynamik und -simulation, SS ≤2019)"


(General in Winter semesters) This lecture is only held in the summer semesters. In the winter semesters, the presented material is that of the last course. I keep it online for information purposes

(general) Many points of my lecture can be interactively simulated online at my simulator traffic-simulation.de

(general) Starting with the summer semester 2020, this Master's course will be delivered in English. The German script will still be available

(2022-04-02) The lecture slides are online. Their titles also serve as an overview of the tentative curriculum

(2022-04-02) Links to further ressources (tutorials, videos) is given at the left panel of this site

Notice: The full curriculum is also included in the textbook Traffic flow dynamics (Springer, 2013, also available as an e-book). However, the material to be provided on this site will also cover the whole course (Also available in German: Treiber/Kesting, Verkehrsflussdynamik, Springer, 2010)

(2021-2022) A good example of a math model describing societal things is the hot topic of simulating the Corona infection spread dynamics. For this, I have set up an interactive Covid-19 simulator and also a series of videos (mostly in German)
While only marginally traffic related, these videos of my Econometrics course give a good example of mathematical models and what you can do with them
