A Note on Boundary Conditions for the LWR Model

This paper studies the boundary conditions for the standard LWR model describing traffic flow. The idea of the BLN (Bardos, Leroux, and Nedelec) condition is described. In the context of traffic flow, the BLN conditions have some natural interpretation. The conditions on the density and on the flow and their meaning in actual simulations are discussed.
