Due to reasons of portability, mobile computers will have to make do with less resources than are available in desktops. Hence, constraints will always be an inherent part of mobile computing. We claim that mobile applications need support for correctly interpreting the state of this constrained environment in which the mobile unit is operating. Further, the application must have the means to implement environment directed policies that provide the quality of service defined by the user. In… 
Designing adaptive environment-aware applications for mobile computing
TLDR
This dissertation addresses the problem of exposing an application to the effects of mobility, and proposes an application architecture that balances the trade-off between hiding and exposing mobility awareness, and presents a novel architecture for managing and reporting changes in the mobile environment to an application.
Exporting environment awareness to mobile applications
TLDR
An architecture to report changes in the environment to interested applications is proposed, based on an event delivery mechanism that decouples event detection from delivery, giving the flexibility and extensibility that is necessary in a mobile computing environment.
Operating System Mobile Applications User-level System software Environment Aware Subsystem
In mobile computing, factors such as add-on hardware components and heterogeneous networks result in an environment of changing resource constraints. An application in such a constrained environment

Supporting parallel computing on a distributed object architecture
TLDR
A distributed object-based framework called DoHPC to support parallel computing on distributed object architectures is proposed and the use of dependence analysis technique to exploit intra-object parallelism and an interoperability model for supporting distributed parallel objects is presented.
A Framework for Exploiting Object Parallelism in Distributed Systems
TLDR
A distributed object-based framework called DoHPC to support parallel computing on distributed object architectures is proposed and the use of dependence analysis technique to exploit intra-object parallelism and an interoperability model for supporting distributed parallel objects is presented.
Wireless Application and API Design
TLDR
This position paper outlines the plan to extend the existing continuous multimedia QoS research into design techniques that minimize user frustration on a wireless platform that involves the development of reactive applications that can adapt to existing network performance, and an API that can support them.

Event delivery abstractions for mobile computing
TLDR
A language level abstraction to deliver events along with the run-time support required for mobile computing to be used in all such environments where an application may be interested in altering its behavior in response to changes in the state of its environment.

Traditionally, the Unix operating system has been associated with deskbound machines tethered to the wall by a power cord and an Ethernet cable. Making Unix support a more nomadic model of computing
IP-based protocols for mobile internetworking
TLDR
This paper explores the concept of providing continuous network access to mobile computers, and presents a set of IP-based protocols that achieve that goal, primarily targeted at supporting a campus environment with mobile computers but also extend gracefully to accommodate hosts moving between different networks.
The PARCTAB mobile computing system
TLDR
The PARCTAB is a personal digital assistant (PDA) that communicates via infrared (IR) datapackets to a network of IR transceivers to enforce security, preventing, for example, an unauthorized application from taking control of a tab.
System Isolation and Network Fast Fail Capability in Solaris
TLDR
This paper describes an approach that automatically enables a system to continue to function, in a diminished capacity, when disconnected from the network, and provides a fast-fail capability so that network operations that are guaranteed to fail, do so quickly and that the clients who are notified of the failures give up quickly.
