Wireless mobile ad hoc networks are self-configuring, dynamic networks in which nodes are free to move. A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is an infrastructure-less network of mobile devices connected without wires, sometimes untrustworthy. From last decade, mobile ad hoc networks have become a very popular research topic. Communication range among mobile nodes in ad-hoc network is limited; hence several hops are needed in a network to transmit a packet from one node to another node. In mobile ad hoc network, some nodes may selfishly decide only to cooperate partially, or not at all, with other nodes as it is a cost intensive activity.
