Fog computing is expected to be an enabler of mobile cloud computing, which extends the cloud computing paradigm to the edge of the network. In the mobile cloud, not only central data centers but also pervasive mobile devices share their heterogeneous resources (e. g. CPUs, bandwidth, content) and support services. The mobile cloud based on such resource(More)
The trophic status and water quality of Lake Tilitso (4920 m above sea level) in a high altitude region in central Nepal were surveyed in September, 1984. The lake is rather large with a maximum depth of 95 m and a surface area of 10.2 km2. The lake water was turbid due to glacier silt and the euphotic layer was only 5 m deep. The nutrient concentration was(More)
We investigated the potential use of sucrose to estimate linear energy transfer (LET) for heavy-ion irradiation. We also made a quantitative comparison between heavy-ion and gamma irradiation in terms of spin concentration. Heavy-ion irradiation of sucrose produces stable free radicals. Based on the electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectra obtained,(More)
We discuss the division of radio resources in the time and frequency domains for wireless local area network (WLAN) devices powered with microwave energy. In general, there are two ways to avoid microwave power transmission (MPT) from influencing data communications: adjacent channel operation of continuous MPT and WLAN data transmission and co-channel(More)
Mobile cloud computing (MCC) is aimed at integrating mobile devices with cloud computing. It is one of the most important concepts that have emerged in the last few years. Mobile devices, in the traditional agent-client architecture of MCC, only utilize resources in the cloud to enhance their functionalities. However, modern mobile devices have many more(More)
In this paper, we study the feasibility of a batteryless wireless sensor supplied with energy by using microwave power transmission (MPT). If we perform co-channel operation of MPT and wireless local area networks (WLANs) for the sake of spectral efficiency, a time division method for MPT and WLAN communications is required to avoid serious interference(More)
The IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN (WLAN) is based on carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) protocol. CSMA/CA uses a backoff mechanism to avoid collisions among stations (STAs). One disadvantage of backoff mechanisms is that STAs must wait for some period of time before transmission, which degrades spectral efficiency. Moreover, a(More)
Differential games are multi-agent versions of optimal control problems, which have been used for modeling control systems of smart grids. Thus, a differential-game theoretic approach is a promising mathematical framework enabling to discuss a demand-side energy management system where there are multiple decision-making entities. This paper first indicates(More)
