In Wireless Ad-hoc NETworks, nodes are free to move randomly and organize themselves arbitrarily, thus topology may change quickly and capriciously. In Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks, especially Wireless Multi-hop Networks provide users with facility of quick communication. In Wireless Multi-hop Networks, routing protocols with energy efficient and delay reduction techniques are needed to fulfill users' demands. In this paper, the authors present Linear Programming models to assess and enhance reactive routing protocols. To practically examine constraints of respective Linear Programming models over reactive protocols, they select AODV, DSR and DYMO. It is deduced from analytical simulations of Linear Programming models in MATLAB that quick route repair reduces routing latency and optimizations of retransmission attempts results efficient energy utilization. To provide quick repair, they enhance AODV and DSR.
