Location modeling represents inclusive mobile objects and their relationship in space, dealing with how to describe a mobile object’s location. The goal of mobility modeling, on the other hand, is to predict or statistically estimate the movement of mobile objects. With the increasing demand for multimedia applications, location-aware services, and system capacity, many recognize that modeling and management of location and mobility is becoming critical to locating mobile objects in wireless information networks. Mobility modeling and location management strongly influence the design and performance of wireless networks in many aspects, such as routing, network planning, handoff, call admission control, and so forth. In this chapter, we present a comprehensive survey of mobility and location models, and schemes used for location-mobility management in cellular and ad hoc networks, which are discussed along with necessary, but understandable, formulation, analysis, and discussions.
