We use the term dense MANET to indicate a MANET that: More formally, a dense MANET is defined as the set of MANET nodes DM(n) = {d0, , dN-1}, where
i) ∀ j ∈ [0, N-1]: dj has at least n neighbors at single-hop distance, and
ii) the spatial node density in the area where DM(n) nodes are is almost constant with regards to time.
