A distributed and adaptive clustering algorithm is proposed in this paper. A distributed algorithm is based on dominating set. Dominating set is used for selection of cluster head and gateway nodes. The quality of cluster head is calculated based on connectivity, stability and residual battery power. Clustering is a method to build and maintain hierarchical addresses in mobile adhoc networks. Here, several clustering algorithms are surveyed concentrating on those that are based on graph domination. Long term service as cluster head depletes their energy, causing them to drop out of the network. Stable, secure cluster head selection increases lifespan and security of the network. This technique maintains cluster structure as stable as possible. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
