The decreasing size of computer components and the increasing availability of wireless communication technology make possible ubiquitous mobile computing: access from anywhere , at any time, to computer networks and the rich set of services attached to them. Mobile computers provide a powerful interface to services that allow a mobile user to access diverse sources of information, exchange electronic messages, interact with other users in real time, and utilize remote computing resources… 
Run time support for mobile code
TLDR
The mobile agent concept is thoroughly analyzed in this thesis, first defining its conceptual boundaries, then describing its context in distributed systems research, looking at promising and less promising applications, and finally analyzing its inherent problems, portability and security above all.
Adaptive continuous media applications in mobile computing environments
TLDR
A new framework for building continuous media applications in a mobile computing environment where an application is partitioned into two pieces that can be dynamically reconfigured by adding or removing replaceable devices transparently from users.
Resource-E cient Policies for Information Transfer in a Mobile Environment
Mobile computing environments are traditionally resource-constrained with mobile computers typically characterized by less network bandwidth and power availability than stationary computers. Ideally,
A Framework for Simulating Wireless Mobile Client-Server Computing
TLDR
Extensions to a discrete-event simulator were designed and implemented to provide a platform for the study of issues relating to applications and middleware and a need to examine the behaviour of realistic applications operating on realistic wireless networks under realistic error conditions and user mobility was met.
Designing distributed algorithms for mobile computing networks
TLDR
This paper presents an operational system model for explicitly incorporating the effects of host mobility with appropriate cost measures and proposes a two tier principle for structuring distributed algorithms for mobile hosts so that the computation and communication requirements of an algorithm are borne by the static hosts to the extent possible.
Counting in Mobile Networks: Theory and Experimentation
TLDR
This work designs new distributed algorithms for this problem, improves them and experimentally test them, validating their performance under various conditions and using the two tier principle for the counting problem of mobile hosts.
Resource-Efficient Policies for Information Transfer in a Mobile Envrionment
Mobile computing environments are traditionally resource-constrained with mobile computers typically characterized by less network bandwidth and power availability than stationary computers. Ideally,
Reliable computing over mobile networks
TLDR
The paper shows that the experience gained with large-scale systems can be successfully applied in this framework and discusses two particular protocols: a total order protocol and a fault-tolerant remote invocation scheme.
A proposed mobile architecture for a distributed database environment
TLDR
This paper proposes an architecture based on current mobile models, but with the addition of a mailbox, which serves as a storage area for the mobile hosts, and uses the TCP/IP protocol for communication in a mobile computing environment.
Mobile Computing: Overview and Current Status
TLDR
The conceptual overview of mobile computing, its achievements, challenges and opportunities, the current status and ongoing research projects in mobile computing worldwide are detailed are detailed.

Energy Eecient Query Optimization
Recently, a number of small yet powerful mobile computers have appeared on the market. Endowed with large disk capacity and network hardware, such systems are capable of holding large amounts of
Adaptive Remote Paging for Mobile Computers
TLDR
It is shown empirically that there is no performance penalty for using the self-organizing paging facility instead of a local disk, suggesting that portable computers need neither a hard disk nor an excessive amount of RAM, provided that they will operate in environments in which remote storage is plentiful.
A Database Interface for Mobile Computers
Computer based personal information service is evolving beyond simple applications such as retrieval of phone numbers to include interaction with large geographically distributed infor mation bases
Scale and performance in a distributed file system
TLDR
This paper examines the consequences of the design decision to transfer whole files between servers and workstations rather than some smaller unit such as records or blocks, as almost all other distributed file systems do, and compares the whole file transfer strategy with that of a block-oriented file system, Sun Microsystems' NFS.
A network architecture providing host migration transparency
TLDR
This paper introduces a new network architecture which provides host migration transparency in large interconnected networks and proposes a protocol based on the propagating cache method, and divides the conventional network layer into two sublayers to realize host migration Transparency.

TLDR
An overview of the Kerberos authentication model as imple- mented for MIT's Project Athena is given, which describes the protocols used by clients, servers, and Kerbero to achieve authentication.
