This introductory paper reviews the current state-of-the-art scientific methods used
for modelling, analysing and controlling the dynamics of vehicular traffic. Possible
mechanisms underlying traffic jam formation and propagation are presented from a
dynamical viewpoint. Stable and unstable motions are described that may give the
skeleton of traffic dynamics, and the effects of driver behaviour are emphasized in
