From the Back Cover:

Emphasizing Embedded Wireless Sensor Networking, Ubiquitous Security, and Middleware

Fundamentals of Mobile and Pervasive Computing explains a revolutionary and rapidly evolving paradigm for computing: Mobile users seamlessly interacting with wireless devices embedded in the environment provides a platform for many novel applications, ranging from pervasive health monitoring to homeland security. Recognizing the increasing dominance of mobile devices, networks, and applications, this mobile-centric perspective gives today's students, researchers, developers, and engineers the inside track on tomorrow's solutions and opportunities.

The only authoritative source offering a holistic view of pervasive computing, Fundamentals of Mobile and Pervasive Computing explains computing fundamentals from the increasingly dominant mobile perspective. Focusing on the principles behind technologies such as security and wireless sensor networks, and written by recognized experts, this text helps you:

  • Get a panoramic view of the fastest-growing and most dynamic field in computing
  • Learn the underlying engineering principles that make pervasive computing work
  • See how individual applications and application requirements fit into the larger system
  • Get in-depth understanding of the most dynamic technologies for service discovery, wireless security, wireless sensor networking, and other key components
  • Perform practical exercises and projects that demonstrate how the pieces work and fit together
  • Preview the latest research that will help realize the full potential of pervasive computing

Complete with numerous specific examples of how pervasive computing technologies are used and integrated, this missing-link volume definitively describes the present and future of mobile and pervasive computing.

About the Author:

Frank Adelstein has been working with computers for over 20 years. His research interests are broad, and include mobile computing, wireless communication, real-time networking, and computer security. Dr. Adelstein holds a B.S. degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Michigan, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from The Ohio State University. He held a postdoctoral research position with the Cornell Computer Science Department, working with the Xerox Design Research Institute. Currently, he is a Senior Principal Scientist with ATC-NY (formerly Odyssey Research Associates), and has been with them since 1999. While there, his work has focused on computer security, ranging from computer forensics, and intrusion detection, to red-teaming and penetration testing. He is a GIAC certified forensic analyst. In his "copious free time," he enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, doodling, and flying around the Finger Lakes region of New York State. He holds a commercial pilot's license for land and sea planes.

Sandeep Kumar S. Gupta received the B.Tech degree in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) from Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India, the M.Tech. degree in CSE from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, and the M.S. and the Ph.D. degree in Computer and Information Science from The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH. He has served at Duke University, Durham, NC as a post-doctoral researcher; at Ohio University, Athens, OH as a Visiting Assistant Professor; and at Colorado State University, Ft. Collins, CO as an Assistant Professor. Since 2001 he has been a faculty member at Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, where he is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering. His current research is focused on dependable and adaptive distributed systems with emphasis on wireless sensor networks, mobile computing, and biomedical applications. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Consortium for Embedded Inter-Networking Technologies (CEINT). He is a member of ACM and a senior member of IEEE. For information about his recent research projects visit http://shamir.eas.asu.edu/-mcn.

Golden G. Richard III was born in 1964 in Jennings, LA. His research interests are in mobile computing, operating systems internals, and computer security, particularly digital forensics. Dr. Richard holds a B.S. degree from the University of New Orleans and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from The Ohio State University, all in Computer Science. Currently, he is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of New Orleans. He is also CTO and co-founder of Digital Forensics Solutions and a GIAC certified forensic analyst. Dr. Richard is the author of Service and Device Discovery: Protocols and Programming, published by McGraw-Hill in 2002. When he's not hacking, he can be found in his garden, covered in dirt, preparing a tasty dish or consuming jazz.

Loren Schwiebert received the B.S. degree in Computer Science (with a dual major in Mathematics) from Heidelberg College, Tiffin, OH, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer and Information Science from The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH. Since 1995 he has been a faculty member at Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, where he is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Chair of the Graduate Committee. His research interests include wireless sensor networks, wireless communication, and interconnection networks. He is a member of the ACM, IEEE, and IEEE Computer Society.
