Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET) are distributed systems which consist of several mobile nodes; they do not include predetermined topology and have no concentrated control. The nodes connect wirelessly by the approach in which they decide themselves. To access the development in the MANET, an approach should be found such that less control messages are distributed in the MANET, and movement of the network nodes is concealed from other network nodes. One method of access the above purposes is the clustering of MANET. In this paper, a distributed weight based clustering algorithm has been proposed for the MANET.
