About this book series

This series publishes short books on mobile computing and pervasive computing, which represent major evolutionary steps in distributed systems. Although many basic principles of distributed system design continue to apply, four key constraints of mobility have forced the development of specialized techniques. These include: unpredictable variation in network quality, lowered trust and robustness of mobile elements, limitations on local resources imposed by weight and size constraints, and concern for battery power consumption. Beyond mobile computing lies pervasive (or ubiquitous) computing, whose essence is the creation of environments saturated with computing and communication, yet gracefully integrated with human users. A rich collection of topics lies at the intersections of mobile and pervasive computing with many other areas of computer science.
