Mobile ad hoc networks have special properties and one of the most significant of those properties is nodes mobility which in part plays a considerable role in network's different parameters. Many efforts were made to make an infrastructure for these networks. In these infrastructures or clusters, a main node called clusterhead has a vital role in keeping the structure, routing and enhancing the efficiency of the network. In this paper, an innovative clustering algorithm in mobile ad hoc networks is presented which has emphasis on a parameter that represents the convergence of the cluster with predict mobility.
