Traffic Dynamics and Simulation (Master) SS 2021

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


(2021-05-28) Several new tutorials and solutions online

(2021-05-27) New lecture slides for Lecture 06: First-order Macroscopic Models and Lecture 07: Second-order Macroscopic Models and online. The slides for Lecture 07 are heavy on math and only the first three sections are treated.

(2021-05-26) New lecture videos and slides for Lecture 05: Macroscopic Models, are online

(2021-05-07) Unfortunately, I forgot to update the Opal learning group subscriptions, so there now is a mixture of old and new students and I do not know who is who. So please subscribe to the new group learning group traffic dynamics SS 2021

(2021-04-27) The second lecture and new tutorials are online

(2021-04-20) The first English tutorials are online

(2021-04-19) The first Online lecture is online

(2021-03-31) Until further notice, the lecture will be held as a virtual lecture this summer semester.

(2021-03-31) The Lecture slides are online. Their titles also serve as an overview of the tentative curriculum

(2021-03-31) 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)

(2021-03-31) The first tutorials are online

(2021-03-31) Many points of my lecture can be interactively simulated online at my simulator traffic-simulation.de

(2021-03-31) 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

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