By mapping to the complex network from nonlinear traffic flow series, more clear physics meaning is given such as the degree distribution, the clustering coefficient and the average shortest path. The traffic dynamics can then be studied by investigating the statistical properties of complex networks topologies. When the vehicle density S=0.05, the constructed complex network displays the characteristics of the regular graph. We also found that the networks constructed by the visibility algorithm can exhibit characteristics of the small-world for the higher density (time series generated by the STCA model). The simulations have been carried out with different ratio of vehicles, which are initially positioned randomly. The fast cars as well as slow cars may use both lanes, so that both cars are treated equally with respect to the lane-changing behavior. To study the correlated characteristics of complex network in different vehicle densities, we give the topologies and degree distributions of networks constructed by our model for different vehicle density in the Fig.1. This diagram represents the network properties of the traffic flow as a function of density. Obviously, it can be concluded from Fig.1 that as vehicle density gradually increase, the graphs and degree distributions seem little change. In addition, according Tab.1 we can see that with the increase of vehicle density, the average shortest path of the complex networks general decreases. At the same time, the clustering coefficient will be large with the increase of vehicle density. Additionally, from the Tab.1, when the vehicle density S=0.05, we find the average shortest path L= and the clustering coefficient C= Obviously, the network does not exhibit the random and small-world network characteristics. But the regular graphs characteristics can be found. The potential of the new method introduced in this article is illustrated with respected to our correlation evolution mechanism for traffic flow time series and complex networks. Another interesting result is that as the increase of vehicle density, the network with the small-world property will be displayed. Results [1] Barabási A.L. and Albert R., Science, 286 (1999) 506.

This algorithm offers an interested method to map a network from a time series. As will be show below, this network inherits several properties of the time series, and its study reveals nontrivial information about the series itself, so that we understand the complexity of the traffic flow. In the algorithm, every node corresponds, in the same order, to series data, and two nodes are connected if visibility exists between the corresponding data, that is to say, if there is a straight line that connects the series data, provided that this visibility line does not intersect any intermediate data height. A graph is composed by nodes and edges. In the visibility criteria, two arbitrary nodes with data values (t a, y a ) and ( t b, y b ) will have connectivity, if any other data placed ( t c, y c ) between them fulfills: We can easily check that by means of the present algorithm, the associated graph extracted from a time series is always : (1) Connected: each node sees at least its nearest neighbors (left and right). (2) Undirected: the way the algorithm is built up, there is no direction defined in the links. (3) Invariant under affine transformations of the series data: the visibility criterion is invariant under rescaling of both horizontal and vertical axes, and under horizontal and vertical translations.

In conclusion, consideration the recently addressed problems of topology evolution and traffic flow model in complex networks, we introduce the visibility algorithm to construct the network from the traffic flow time series generated by STCA model. It shows that the constructed networks exhibit the small-world characteristics effects with the increase of traffic density. But for the vehicle density S=0.05, the network will display the properties of the regular graph. Additionally, some of important statistical characteristics of the constructed networks are discussed for different lane-change probabilities. It is found that different lane-change probabilities almost have no great influence to the complex network properties. Conclusions Tab.1 The average shortest path and clustering coefficient of the evolving networks for different initial vehicle densities, when R=0.01 (R is the ratio of slow vehicles). The next step is to analyze the effects of the ratio of slow vehicles on the characteristics of complex networks. According Fig.2 and Tab.2, we find that the average shortest path L= and the clustering coefficient C=0.395, when the vehicle density S=0.05 and the ratio of slow vehicle R=0.06. Therefore, the network exhibits characteristics of the regular network. In addition, we also find that, when the vehicle density S=0.1, the same result can be draw as S=0.05. From Tab.2, when the vehicle density S=0.15 and the ratio of slow vehicle R=0.06, the network exhibits the properties of the small-world. At the same time, with increasing density the networks show the small-world properties more oblivious. Therefore, the results demonstrate that the different ratio of slow vehicle have little effect on the visibility method in mapping time series into complex network topologies. It can be concluded from Fig.3 and Tab.3 that the characteristics of the graphs have no obviously changes under the symmetry and asymmetry lane-change conditions compared with Fig.1 and Tab.1. In addition, according the Tab.3, when the vehicle density S=0.05, we find the average shortest path L= and the clustering coefficient C=0.386, which indicates the network with the regular graphs characteristics. But when the vehicle density S=0.25, the average shortest path L=6.664 and clustering coefficient C=0.399 are obtained, which shows the network with the small-world characteristic. Moreover, the higher the vehicle density S, the more obvious of the small-world effects will be revealed. In a word, from Fig.3 and Tab.3 obtain that different lane-change probabilities have little influences on the visibility algorithm in mapping time series into complex networks.
