Abstract: We derive a kinetic equation for flows on general, unstructured networks with applications to production, social and transportation networks. This model allows for a homogenization procedure, yielding a macroscopic transport model for large networks on large time scales.
Keywords: Network dynamics, kinetic theory, asymptotic analysis.
