The proliferation of cloud computing resources in the recent years offers a way for mobile devices with limited resources to achieve computationally intensive tasks in real-time. The mobile-cloud computing paradigm, which involves collaboration between mobile and cloud resources, is expected to become increasingly popular in mobile application development. Dynamic partitioning of applications between mobile and cloud platforms based on resource availability is crucial in achieving the best performance for any computationally intensive mobile application. In this paper, the authors propose a dynamic performance optimization framework for mobile-cloud computing utilizing mobile agent-based application partitions.
