In a mobile wireless network, multipath routing provides an effective way to recover from frequent network failures, balance load and energy resources among network nodes, and allow more secure and resilient data transmission. This chapter examines various design approaches to building multipath routing protocols, including handling different failure models, constructing routes of diverse characteristics, building multiple routes with constraints on accessing global knowledge, locating nodes
