Welcome to SIAM! Applied mathematics, in partnership with computational science, is essential in solving many real-world problems. Our mission is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology through our publications, research, and community.
|Traffic Jam of Self-driven Particles at the 2013 SIAM Annual Meeting. Jamming phenomena are seen in various transportation system including cars, buses, pedestrians, ants and molecular motors, which are considered as self-driven particles. Nishinari starts with simple mathematical models and extends the models to account for various traffic phenomena and the theory and experiment is compared to show that the models are able to capture fundamental features of observations. This talk is available online along with more presentations from this conference and other SIAM meetings at SIAM Presents.|
