FROM PARTICLE HOPPING MODELS TO TRAFFIC FLOW THEORY

Very simple models of particles hopping on a grid appear too simple to have much similarity to traffic. Yet, some of these models can be proved to generate, in the so-called fluid-dynamical limit, variations of the Lighthill-Whitham theory. For more realistic particle hopping models, the fluid-dynamical limit is not known, but insight can be obtained by observing traffic jam dynamics.
