This paper provides a game theoretic approach to optimize the transmission energy in wireless ad hoc network and to maintain the connectivity of the network. As nodes have limited power they may act in a selfish manner in order to minimize their power (energy) consumption. We also suggest a novel method to identify the selfish nodes present in the topology.
