Ad hoc networks are useful in various fields due to their various characteristics. There are various applications which require immediate transmission of messages. Therefore routing is the main problem faced by ad hoc networks. There are various existing routing algorithm that are used for path optimization but these all protocols have some pros and cons. This paper gives a comparative study of various routing protocols which can be useful in developing a new protocol which can be more efficient than existing protocols to optimize the paths in an ad hoc network.
