In recent years mobile ad-hoc networks have become very popular because of their widespread usage. Cooperation among the nodes in ad-hoc networks is an important issue for communication to be possible. But some nodes do not cooperate in communication and saves their energy. These nodes are called as selfish nodes. In the literature there are many methods which deal with the selfish behavior of the nodes. This paper compares different methods available for reducing the effect of selfish nodes in mobile ad hoc networks. This paper also presents some new approaches.
