|Title:||Traffic flow and intelligent motions of large groups|
|Seminar:||Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium|
|Speaker:||Benedetto Piccoli, Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo, Rome, Italy|
|In recent years a growing interdisciplinary interest showed up
for moving groups of intelligent agents, which includes vehicular traffic,
pedestrian flows, moving robots and animal groups.
We first review various results and applications
about modelling of vehicular traffic via conservation laws,
with special focus on networks.
Then we discuss an alternative mathematical framework,
based on time-evolving measures, which
can be applied to pedestrian flows and animal/robot groups.
The latter is still macroscopic but takes into account microscopic issues.|
