Paper: Analyzing control traffic overhead in mobile ad-hoc network protocols versus mobility and data traffic activity

This paper proposes a general, parameterized model for analyzing protocol control overheads in mobile ad-hoc networks. A probabilistic model for the network topology and the data traffic is proposed in order to estimate overhead due to control packets of routing protocols.
