Congested traffic dynamics, weak flows and very degenerate elliptic equations

By L. Brasco, G. Carlier and F. Santambrogio


Starting from a model of traffic congestion, we introduce a minimal-flow--like variational problem whose solution is characterized by a very degenerate elliptic PDE. We precisely investigate the relations between these two problems, which can be done by considering some weak notion of flow for a related ODE. We also prove regularity results for the degenerate elliptic PDE, which enables us in some cases to apply the DiPerna-Lions theory
