This paper addresses the problem of giving a formal
metric to estimate uncertainty at the moment of starting a distributed
scientific calculation on clients working over mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs).
Measuring the uncertainty related to the successful completion of a distributed
computation on the aforementioned network infrastructure is based on the
Dempster-Shafer Theory of Evidence (DST). Shannon Entropy will be the formal
mechanism by which the conflict in the scenarios proposed in this paper will be
estimated. This paper will begin with a description of the procedure by which
connectivity probability is to be obtained and will continue by presenting the
mobility model most appropriate for the performed simulations. Finally,
simulations will be performed to calculate the Shannon Entropy, after which the
corresponding conclusions will be presented.
