About this book


This book reports the latest advances on the design and development of mobile computing systems, describing their applications in the context of modeling, analysis and efficient resource management. It explores the challenges on mobile computing and resource management paradigms, including research efforts and approaches recently carried out in response to them to address future open-ended issues. The book includes 26 rigorously refereed chapters written by leading international researchers, providing the readers with technical and scientific information about various aspects of mobile computing, from basic concepts to advanced findings, reporting the state-of-the-art on resource management in such environments. It is mainly intended as a reference guide for researchers and practitioners involved in the design, development and applications of mobile computing systems, seeking solutions to related issues. It also represents a useful textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses, addressing special topics such as: mobile and ad-hoc wireless networks; peer-to-peer systems for mobile computing; novel resource management techniques in cognitive radio networks; and power management in mobile computing systems.
