This paper is concerned with a fluidodynamic model for traffic flow. More precisely, we consider a single conservation law, deduced from conservation of the number of cars, defined on a road network that is a collection of roads with junctions. The evolution problem is underdetermined at junctions, hence we choose to have some fixed rules for the… (More)

We consider an hyperbolic conservation law with discontinuous flux. Such partial differential equation arises in different applicative problems, in particular we are motivated by a model of traffic flow. We provide a new formulation in terms of Riemann Solvers. Moreover, we determine the class of Riemann Solvers which provide existence and uniqueness of the… (More)

We consider a hybrid control system and general optimal control problems for this system. We suppose that the switching strategy imposes restrictions on control sets and we provide necessary conditions for an optimal hybrid trajectory, stating a Hybrid Necessary Principle (HNP). Our result generalizes various necessary principles available in the… (More)

This paper deals with various applications of conservation laws on networks. In particular we consider the car traffic, described by the Lighthill-Whitham-Richards model and by the Aw-Rascle-Zhang model, the telecommu-nication case, by using the model introduced by D'Apice-Manzo-Piccoli and, finally, the case of a gas pipeline, modeled by the classical… (More)
