Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are dynamic networks populated by mobile stations, or Mobile Nodes (MNs). Mobility model is a hot topic in many areas, for example, protocol evaluation, network performance analysis and so on. How to simulate MNs mobility is the problem the authors should consider if they want to build an accurate mobility model. When new nodes can join and other nodes can leave the network and therefore the topology is dynamic. Specifically, MANETs consist of a collection of nodes randomly placed in a line (not necessarily straight).
