The problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You are given the problem of analyzing the dynamics of a line of cars moving on a one-lane highway. One approach to this problem is to assume that the line of cars behaves like a group of coupled oscillators. How would you set this problem up in a tractable way? Make lots of assumptions.

Can anyone help me get started on this? I'm having trouble even setting up the differential equation.
