A New Proposal for Route Finding in Mobile AdHoc Networks

H.Vignesh Ramamoorthy, D.Suganya Devi
2013 International Journal of Computer Network and Information Security  
The approaches used here are Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) and Multi Agent System (MAS).  ...  The proposed approach is a novel routing pattern based on Ant Colony Optimization and Multi Agent System.  ...  In a highly dynamic environment, such as MANETs, a small diameter of an alliance is more desirable. This is because, if the diameter is large, stability of a system in an alliance would be less.  ...
