In this paper, the authors provide a theoretical framework of energy-optimal mobile cloud computing under stochastic wireless channel. Their objective is to conserve energy for the mobile device, by optimally executing mobile applications in the mobile device (i.e., mobile execution) or offloading to the cloud (i.e., cloud execution). One can, in the former case sequentially reconfigure the CPU frequency; or in the latter case dynamically vary the data transmission rate to the cloud, in response to the stochastic channel condition.
