The exponential increase of smartphones and tablets is becoming a vital part of human lives because of its pervasive and vast effect on everyday life. With advancements in cloud computing and wireless technologies, Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) has attracted significant attention as it utilizes techniques to empower mobile applications. It provides computation, data processing and storage to limited computing devices and moves the costly operations to the centralized cloud servers.
Although MCC offers numerous benefits, several challenges include scalability, reliability, security and privacy, bandwidth and data transfer, data management and synchronization, energy efficiency, and heterogeneity. In particular, security and privacy are significant challenging issues for MCC applications such as m-commerce, m-health, and mobile social network applications. Many research books published topics of MCC overview, challenges, and issues. This list presents the top leading research books in MCC, and the topics involve recent trends and development in MCC with the main issues in offloading frameworks in the MCC domain that requires further research.
