The application of Artificial Neural Network (ANN's to mobile Ad Hock Network) for multicasting where the problem is to find an efficient route to transmit packets over many nodes in the network. For multicasting in MANETS which address the security and Quality of Service (Q.O.S.) issues on the utility database makes this area highly suitable for ANN implementation. ANN is able to learn the relationship among past, current, and future route discoveries of the different nodes in the mobility range. A wide variety of different ANN has been used for route discoveries in the few years resulting in a noticeable number of publications on the subject.
