With the development of computer technology and widespread use rapidly, computer goes deeply into every areas of life and plays a very important role. Ad hoc network technologies and standards, such as IEEE 802.11's ad hoc mode, allow the quick setup of a wireless network among a group of mobile stations, where the stations communicate with each other either directly or indirectly through multiple hops, without the aid of an infrastructure (e.g., cables, access points or base stations). Since mobile stations are typically powered by batteries, the success of MANETs strongly relies on energy efficient communications.
