Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a dynamic network formed by a collection of wireless nodes. As it is a dynamic network all the nodes involved in the network must play the role of a router at some point of time. Path must be constructed by each node if it needs to communicate with the other node. A node can find path to other node either by a proactive or a reactive or a hybrid routing protocol. Many mobility models and protocols are available to find path. Each mobility model and protocol has its own strength and weakness pertain to MANET environment.
