Topological characteristics is the foundation for optimizing topology structure and designing protocols. In this work, we study broadly the topological characteristics of Ad hoc networks through the perspective of complex network and identify the small-world effect, scale-free property, clustering property and hierarchy of Ad hoc networks, we also analyze the relationship among many of topological characteristics. Results shows that the degree distribution, core distribution, path distribution all present an obvious distribution trait. Moreover, the Ad hoc networks have clear small-world and clustering properties. Additionally, we found that a node whose degree is close to average degree usually has higher clustering coefficient, namely this node has a good fault tolerance and survivability.
