Heterogeneous Models for Network Flow and Crowd Dynamics

Prof. Benedetto Piccoli

University of Rutgers-Camden

Abstract:  Various mixed discrete-continuous models for traffic flow on networks were recently proposed, the latter have applications in vehicular traffic, supply chains, data networks and other. In this framework, we illustrate some recent results on coupling odes with pdes. Then a multiscale approach using time evolving measures is showed, with applications to crowd dynamics.
