In this paper, the authors present the optimized routing technique for mobile ad hoc network based on the Hopfield neural network and mobile agent technology with primary goal to find an optimal route. Mobile agent technique is used to share the information of network conditions. Here, they realized the proposed routing technique through two independent methods. They are both based on the Hopfield neural network. In first method, an optimized route is selected based on multi criteria optimization in order to provide the best possible usage of resources.
