A novel Dynamic Noise-Dependent Probabilistic (DNDP) route discovery algorithm was recently developed to enhance the performance of the dynamic probabilistic algorithm in noisy Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs). In this algorithm, the mathematical model for calculating node retransmission probability (pt) is calculated as a function of two independent variables: Number of first-hop neighbors (k) and probability of reception (pc). The model also shows another independent variable, namely, the maximum retransmission probability that can be assigned to the transmitting node (pt,pcmin), which is assumed to be a fixed value. In this paper, the authors propose a new mathematical model for calculating pt. In this new model pt,pcmin is calculated as a function of k.
