Abstract : The mobile ad hoc networks comprise of dynamic nodes without any fixed infrastructure. It is possible for each and every node to acts as sender and router in order to forward the packets between the nodes since the nodes cannot communicate directly among themselves. These communication techniques are termed as broadcasting since it floods messages from one node to all the other nodes in the MANET. The broadcasting in MANET uses unicast (or) multicast routing protocols to broadcast control information for the purpose of route establishment. The key focus of broadcast protocols is to reduce the overhead (redundancy, contention, collision) for reaching all the nodes in network. These overhead caused by broadcasting is usually costly and are referred as broadcast storm problem. This paper provides different broadcast schemes available in order to overcome the broadcast storm problem caused by redundant retransmissions.
