The authors consider the location service in a Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET), where each node needs to maintain its location information by frequently updating its location information within its neighboring region, which is called Neighborhood Update (NU), occasionally updating its location information to certain distributed location server in the network, which is called Location Server Update (LSU). The tradeoff between the operation costs in location updates and the performance losses of the target application due to location inaccuracies imposes a crucial question for nodes to decide the optimal strategy to update their location information, where the optimality is in the sense of minimizing the overall costs.
