This paper deals with the problem of modeling shadow fading for wireless links in mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET). In contrast to broadcasting or cellular applications, the links in a MANET generally cannot be analyzed independently. Thus the evaluation of routing techniques and network protocols for future systems requires a realistic modeling of the correlation of the links. In the following a novel modeling approach based on stochastic geometry will be presented. This computationally inexpensive model allows for dual mobility, the simultaneous movement of the transmitter and the receiver, and can be easily adapted for various environments. The model can be integrated in network simulators and therefore enables the analysis of the influence of shadow fading on the performance of MANET routing algorithms and protocols.
