Math Seminar: "Introducing the Method of Characteristics with the 1-D Traffic Equation"


4:10pm Neill 5W

Stan Swierczek

*Abstract*: We will derive the 1-D traffic equation as a PDE from initial principles, discuss ways the model can be improved, and then give an intuitive introduction to the method of characteristics as it applies to this PDE.
