“Introduction to the Theory of Traffic Flow” Book Review: This book is for students of engineering. It explains the movement of individual vehicles or groups of vehicles. It describes the methods by which links in a road network are designed and dimensioned or by which traffic is controlled. It deals with traffic flow on links between nodes. It contains literature references at the end of the book.

3. “Introduction to Modern Traffic Flow Theory and Control: The Long Road to Three-Phase Traffic Theory” by Boris S Kerner
4. “Transportation and Traffic Theory: Flow, Dynamics and Human Interaction” by Hani S Mahmassani

“Transportation and Traffic Theory: Flow, Dynamics and Human Interaction” Book Review: This book is for people interested in researching or understanding traffic and transportation phenomena and in developing effective approaches to planning, design, and management of transportation systems. It covers a wide range of aspects of the modeling of transportation processes as complex systems, an overarching theme is a recognition that these systems are a collective expression of individual human decisions.

“Traffic Flow Dynamics: Data, Models and Simulation” Book Review: This book is designed for students of physics and traffic engineering and students and professionals in computer science, mathematics, and interdisciplinary topics. It gives a mathematical description of the dynamics of traffic flow, covering macroscopic models which describe traffic in terms of density, as well as microscopic many-particle models in which each particle corresponds to a vehicle and its driver. It talks about chapters like traffic instabilities and model calibration/validation. It shows the theoretical framework in selected applications such as traffic-state and travel-time estimation, intelligent transportation systems, traffic operations management, and a detailed physics-based model for fuel consumption and emissions. It contains many figures and problems with solutions.

8. “Traffic Flow Theory and Control” by Donald R Drew
9. “Applications of Automatic Control Concepts to Traffic Flow Modeling and Control (Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences)” by M Papageorgiou
10. “Traffic Flow Theory, Characteristics, and Simulation Models 2009 (Transportation Research Record)” by Transportation Research Board
