Abstract [en]

Today’s mobile phones are capable of both fast data processing and communication via a number of interfaces such as 3G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. As the number of mobile phones increases, the distance between adjacent mobile phones decreases. However, the mobile phones rarely communicate directly with each other. This thesis explores the possibilities of communication and work-sharing among adjacent mobile phones by the creation of a communication framework and an application. The communication framework enables both direct and group communication among mobile phones and the application uses the communication framework to share work and improve the download time of a web page. Together they form a system that is used to evaluate the performance in mobile distributed systems. The thesis demonstrates that work-sharing among adjacent mobile phones is feasible and that the speedup is significant when the shared work is large enough compared to the overhead introduced by the communication.
