"Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a set of self-configuring mobile hosts, equipped with a CSMA/CA (Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance) transceiver, that may communicate, move freely independently and any time without any base station support. The broadcasting is inevitable operation in MANET and commonly used for route discovering. The flooding technique used normally for broadcast leads to redundant rebroadcasting and causes broadcast storm problem. This paper analyses this problem and techniques reported to handle it briefly."
