Traffic Dynamics and Simulation (Master) SS 2023


(2023-07-16) The last set of lecture slides (12: fuel emissions) is now online.

(2023-07-07) Information on the examination is now available.

(2023-05-09) Due to lacking attendance, the lectures and tutorials will be purely virtual until further notice. If you would like further lectures in presence, please let me know.

(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. It becomes, however, more and more incomplete as the course develops.

(2023-03-31) Since the tutorial is on Tue and the lecture on Wed, there will be no tutorial in the first lecture week (Apr. 3, 2023). The course starts with the lecture at 14:50 on Apr 4, 2023, lecture room POT 51.

(2023-03-31) The lecture slides are online. Their titles also serve as an overview of the tentative curriculum

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)

(2023-04-02) Please subscribe to the new learning group traffic dynamics SS 2023 serving for now as an e-mail list for central communication


The examination will take place as a written test on Jul. 25, 13:00 at the Potthoff building, room POT 13.The examination takes 120 minutes and you can get a maximum of 120 points.
Notice: The exam language is English.


All what is relevant are


It is probably a good idea to try understand all the in-slide questions ( orange "?" or text) and check the given answers ( green "!" or text).

What to bring:

  • Pocket calculator,
  • lecture notes,
  • tutorials including solutions,
  • (optionally) the textbook Traffic Flow Dynamics or Verkehrsdynamik und -simulation (German).
Notice: The fact that you can essentially use anything (with the exception of your neighbor or the internet) does not necessarily mean that the exam will be a piece of cake [wird leicht sein]. It definitely will not be a simple "copy-and-paste" exercise.
