Abstract: Fifty years ago, Professor Toda proposed an integrable discrete system, which is called the Toda lattice. On occasion of fifty years from the finding of the lattice, firstly I would emphasize the importance of the discrete system. Then I introduce a nonlinear discrete equation that can be used to explain some behavior of traffic flow and discuss its solution.
