Ad hoc networking techniques allow low power devices to communicate among themselves utilizing one another as communications relays. Often the resulting networks are highly dynamic, with nodes entering and leaving the network, often for short duration membership. In this paper, we systematically address issues associated with changes that occur in ad hoc networks. We consider the functionality impact of change and address bounds on optimization that exist when change rates are high.
