In this paper, we derive the probability distribution of the epoch length for the random waypoint model in mobile ad hoc networks. An epoch here is referred to as the movement between two target locations in the mobility model. Such a study is important as the epoch length distribution may be required for the derivation of the link-duration distribution or node spatial distribution for mobile ad hoc networks. The analytical result is then verified via simulation.
