From the reviews:
"Three-phase theory must be taken seriously, and traditional analysis by traffic engineers should be revised. I hope the book will encourage the traffic research community to employ the concepts and methods that Kerner has so convincingly presented. ... Concepts are clearly illustrated with figures, and the book's useful glossary of traffic terminology should make the material accessible to graduate students in physics, mathematics, and engineering. ... I highly recommend Introduction to Modern Traffic Flow Theory and Control." (L. Craig Davis, Physics Today, March 2010)
"The book brings together the various paper publications by Kerner and his coauthors in a concise and readable manner. ... He provides the reader with a set of models that follow three-phase theory and can be used in traffic simulators. I would like to recommend this book by Boris Kerner and like to encourage our community to make use of his models (and theory) in future studies on traffic control." (Hannes Hartenstein, IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine, September, 2010)
"This book contains and illustrates a qualitative theory of traffic flow based on three-phase traffic flow models which were introduced by the author and some coauthors in a long series of papers and experiments. ... Interested readers can be recommended to start reading this book ... ." (Hartmut Noltemeier, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1189, 2010)
