Mobile special NETworks (MANETs) are group of wireless computers in the form of communication network which do not have predetermined structure. Administration and configuration of these kinds of networks are not dependent on any special user. On the other hand, special networking allows formation of an independent interconnection set of devices. Although there are abundant scenarios for fixed-structure networks, special networks are needed for some cases in military missions, emergency operations, educational classes, etc., where network infrastructure varies during the mission both in terms of routing, population and the type of devices. Hence, in the recent years, special networks have been carefully considered and routing appears as the main problem in this kind of networks.
