An Urban Traffic Network Analysis Method Based on EPs
Urban traffic networks (UT-Nets) and cellular metabolic networks (C-Nets) have many common functional characteristics and internal mechanisms. Based on the similarity and traffic conservation, we use extreme pathways (EPs) to analysis the state of UT-Nets. Experiments showed the EPs method for cell metabolism also can be used in urban traffic network analysis after defining some indicators.
