Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is an autonomous system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links. Each node operates as an end system and also as a router to forward packets. The nodes are free to move about and organize themselves into a network. These nodes change position frequently. They can be studied formally as graphs in which the set of edges varies in time. The main method for evaluating the performance of MANETs is simulation.
