"Wireless ad hoc networks: is an interconnection of nodes which are mobile, have wireless links with temporary connections and without any centralized control. All this properties makes the network dynamic in nature. To communicate with each other over distance, nodes either can transmit directly or through intermediate nodes, which can relay the data to the destination, but such paths are contemporaneous in such networks. To improve the performance of such network, nodes must remain available to route and forward the data packets of other nodes."
