NUMBER OF MEETINGS IN FREE POISSON TRAFFIC

Using Renyi's model of free Poisson traffic the distribution of the number of meetings of vehicles on a highway section during a given time interval is investigated. An integro- differential equation for the generating function of that variable is deduced and the first moments are calculated. The generating function is given explicitly in simple cases and approximately in cases of practical interest. /AUTHOR/
