are proposed for Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) to minimize redundancy,
contention and collision known as broadcast storm problem in the literature.
The propose techniques uses only cover angle concept for rebroadcast decision
without using neighbors knowledge information`s or complex calculations.
Through the analysis and extensive simulations, the results reveal the
cover angle-based broadcasting techniques exhibits superior performance
in term of both delivery ratio and number of retransmission. The propose
techniques are fully distributed, simple and can be easily implemented
in MANETs.]]>Cui, Y., K.A. Hua and A. Phillips,2005Dommety, G. and R. Jain,1996Haas, Z.J., J.Y. Halpern and L. Li,2002Johnson, D.B., D.A. Maltz and J. Broch,2001Li, J. and P.
