Leader election has been identified as a basic building block in distributed computing. MANETs are distinct from traditional distributed systems as they are dynamic and self-organizing networks because of their dynamic wireless link formation and removal, network partitioning and disconnections, limited bandwidth and energy and highly variable message delay. These characteristics makes the design of leader election protocols even more challenging than in classical distributed networks. In this paper, the authors present a leader election algorithm taking into account irregular topologies and mobility of the nodes.
