In a mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) environment, intermediate nodes on a communication path are expected to forward packets of other nodes so that the mobile nodes can communicate beyond their wireless transmission range. However, because mobile nodes are usually constrained by limited energy, bandwidth and computational power, a selfish node may be unwilling to spend its resources in forwarding packets...
