The Physics of Traffic: Empirical Freeway Pattern Features, Engineering Applications, and Theory (Understanding Complex Systems)
The core of ths book presents a theory developed by the author to combine the recent insight into empirical data with mathematical models in freeway traffic research based on dynamical non-linear processes.
From the reviews:
"For the analysis of complex spatiotemporal behaviour of traffic on motorways Kerner’s book severs as an important basis for freeway traffic science that can be valuable for traffic scientists and engineers in solving many tasks in traffic engineering." (Hartmut Keller, tec-Traffic Engineering and Control International Journal of Traffic Management and Transportation Planning 2005, vol. 46, page 72-73)
"I commend Boris Kerner on his pioneering research on a new traffic theory... [This] is the first book I have read that offers detailed discussions about traffic congestion on freeways." --Henry Lieu, in Physics Today, November 2005
"Key topic of the book is the description of empirical spatiotemporal behaviour of traffic based on the Kerner’s three-phase traffic theory. The content of the book is based on research work, which Kerner has performed … . The comprehensive bibliography … is impressive whereby they are referred to almost solely as reference...
