  • Title: Optimization of pedestrian evacuation modelled by PDE
  • Short description:

    Pedestrian flow can be modelled with a nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE), whose solution gives the density along the path. The flux of people is a nonlinear function of the local density, project means some theory, implementation of a numerical method, simulation of traffic-flow situations and identification of the traffic-flow flux function from traffic movies.

    Prerequisites: good grades in courses in mathematics (up to Kontinuerliga system) and numerical analysis

  • Long description:

    None
