This book continues the biannual series of conference proceedings, which has become a classical reference resource in traffic and granular research alike, and addresses the latest developments at the intersection of physics, engineering and computational science. These involve complex systems, in which multiple simple agents, be they vehicles or particles, give rise to surprising and fascinating phenomena. The contributions collected in these proceedings cover several research fields, all of which deal with transport. Topics include highway, pedestrian and internet traffic; granular matter; biological transport; transport networks; data acquisition; data analysis and technological applications. Different perspectives, i.e., modeling, simulations, experiments, and phenomenological observations are considered.

The understanding of empirical traf?c congestion occurring on unsignalized mul- lane highways and freeways is a key for effective traf?c management, control, or- nization, and other applications of transportation engineering. However, the traf?c ?ow theories and models that dominate up to now in transportation research journals and teaching programs of most universities cannot explain either traf?c breakdown or most features of the resulting congested patterns. These theories are also the - sis of most dynamic traf?c assignment models and freeway traf?c control methods, which therefore are not consistent with features of real traf?c. For this reason, the author introduced an alternative traf?c ?ow theory called three-phase traf?c theory, which can predict and explain the empirical spatiot- poral features of traf?c breakdown and the resulting traf?c congestion. A previous book “The Physics of Traf?c” (Springer, Berlin, 2004) presented a discussion of the empirical spatiotemporal features of congested traf?c patterns and of three-phase traf?c theory as well as their engineering applications. Rather than a comprehensive analysis of empirical and theoretical results in the ?eld, the present book includes no more empirical and theoretical results than are necessary for the understanding of vehicular traf?c on unsignalized multi-lane roads. The main objectives of the book are to present an “elementary” traf?c ?ow theory and control methods as well as to show links between three-phase traf?c t- ory and earlier traf?c ?ow theories. The need for such a book follows from many commentsofcolleaguesmadeafterpublicationofthebook“ThePhysicsofTraf?c”.

Verkehrsdynamik präsentiert die neuesten Entwicklungen im Bereich Modellierung und Simulation des Fußgänger- und Autobahnverkehrs, basierend auf einer Synthese physikalischer und sozialwissenschaftlicher Konzepte. Im Zentrum des Interesses steht der Vergleich der Modelle mit empirischen Daten sowie das Verständnis von "Staus aus dem Nichts" und anderen faszinierenden kollektiven Bewegungsmustern, die durch Selbstorganisation entstehen. Verkehrsdynamik diskutiert neuartige Methoden, wie Selbstorganisationsphänomene zur Optimierung des Verkehrsflusses ausgenutzt werden können und wendet sich an Wissenschaftler, Städte- und Verkehrsplaner. Die behandelte Thematik genießt wegen ihrer aktuellen gesellschaftlichen und politischen Relevanz in jüngster Vergangenheit eine außerordentlich große Aufmerksamkeit in den Medien.

Can one obtain new insights by comparing the motion of bacteria or plankton striving for food & light with that of pedestrians in a crowded street? Do complex transport networks behave similarly under high load, be it the internet or downtown city traffic? These & related questions were topics of the international workshop on Traffic & Granular Flow '97, which took place in Duisburg, 6-8 October, 1997 (as part of the 25th anniversary of the Gerhard-Mercator-Universitat, Duisburg). The contributions contained in the book reflect the enormous research activities in this interdisciplinary field which attracts increasing public attention.

Annotation The seminar is a small topical conference whose pedagogical focus is on young researchers. The 34 main lectures and other invited talks discuss such topics as exploring complex graphs by random walks, critical behavior of binary production reaction-diffusion systems, the plastic phase of driven vortex crystals, real space statistical properties of standard cosmological models, and basic concepts and physical implementations of quantum computation. In addition, 40 half- page abstracts summarize a selection of contributed papers. Those topics include the Yaldran-Khan catalyzed reaction model, the role of interfaces in the propagation of damage in the confined Ising model, and theories of the motion of the satellites of Mars. There is no indexing other than an author list. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Der Muezzin und die Kuckucksuhr. Seit Jahrzehnten hat Alice Schwarzer eine enge und liebevolle Beziehung zu einer Familie in Algerien, die in ihrer Vielfalt und Lebendigkeit ein Abbild dieses nordafrikanischen Landes zwischen Tradition und Moderne ist, zwischen islamistischer Bedrohung und demokratischen Hoffnungen. Zuerst traf Alice Schwarzer 1989 Djamila, eine algerische Journalistin, die nach dem drohenden Wahlsieg der Islamisten und dem Bürgerkrieg in den 90er-Jahren wie viele andere um ihr Leben fürchten musste und für einige Jahre nach Deutschland emigrierte. Djamilas Eltern und Großeltern, Brüder und Schwestern, Neffen und Nichten lernte Alice Schwarzer später in deren Heimat bei Neujahrsfeiern, Ferienbesuchen und Hochzeiten kennen und lieben. Diese Familie lässt Alice Schwarzer zusammen mit der Fotografin Bettina Flitner lebendig werden: die Generation der Alten, geprägt von der Kolonialzeit, dem Befreiungskrieg und den Jahren des Aufbruchs, die Generation, die die »schwarzen Jahre« des islamistischen Terrors und der politischen Repression durchlebte, und die jungen Leute von heute zwischen High Heels und Verschleierung, zwischen Instagram und spätsozialistischer Stagnation.

Dry granular materials, such as sand, sugar and powders, can be poured into a container like a liquid and can also form a pile, resisting gravity like a solid, which is why they can be regarded as a fourth state of matter, neither solid nor liquid. This book focuses on defining the physics of dry granular media in a systematic way, providing a collection of articles written by recognised experts. The physics of this field is new and full of challenges, but many questions (such as kinetic theories, plasticity, continuum and discrete modelling) also require the strong participation of mechanical and chemical engineers, soil mechanists, geologists and astrophysicists. The book gathers into a single volume the relevant concepts from all these disciplines, enabling the reader to gain a rapid understanding of the foundations, as well as the open questions, of the physics of granular materials. The contributors have been chosen particularly for their ability to explain new concepts, making the book attractive to students or researchers contemplating a foray into the field. The breadth of the treatment, on the other hand, makes the book a useful reference for scientists who are already experienced in the subject.
