Inattentive Drivers: Making the Solution Method the Model
McCartney, Mark
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v34 n4 p609-621 Jul 2003
A simple car following model based on the solution of coupled ordinary differential equations is considered. The model is solved using Euler's method and this method of solution is itself interpreted as a mathematical model for car following. Examples of possible classroom use are given. (Contains 6 figures.)
