A new strategy for clustering a wireless AD HOC network is proposed. The main contribution of their work is to improve Weighted Clustering Algorithm (WCA) and other similar algorithms. In literature, the node degree is considered as an important weight metric in cluster head selection process. Unfortunately, this metric is not consistent especially when it is considered separately at the node environment such as the neighbors' location within the transmission range zone of this node. To overcome this inefficiency, they propose two new models. Thereafter, they combined these two models to take profit of their efficiencies. The new combined model motivates them to generate and reformulate many node degree based formula given in literature and dealing with Quality of Service (QoS) as stability and load balancing clustering parameters.
