Mobile ad hoc network become nowadays more and more used in different domains, due to its flexibility and low cost of deployment. However, this kind of network still suffering from several problems as the lack of resources. Many solutions are proposed to face these problems, among these solutions there is the clustering approach. This approach tries to partition the network into a virtual group. It is considered as a primordial solution that aims to enhance the performance of the total network,

In this paper, we study some schemes of clustering such as Dominating-Set-based clustering, Energy-efficient clustering, Low-maintenance clustering, Load-balancing clustering, and Combined-metrics based clustering.
