Motivate Coopration in Mobile Ad-Hoc Network by Giving Punishment to Misbehavior Nodes in DSR
A mobile ad hoc network is a wireless network formed by some nodes in a self-organized way without relying on any established infrastructure or centralized administration. Since all services essential to the operation of the network are assumed to be provided by the nodes themselves, the functioning of mobile ad hoc networks heavily depends on the cooperative behavior of their nodes. Communication between two distant nodes A and B, for instance, relies on intermediate nodes that forward packets for the benefits of A and B. So far, applications of mobile ad hoc networks have been envisioned mainly for crisis situations (e.g., in the battlefield in rescue operations).
