dc.description.abstract <p>In our homes and in the enterprise, in our leisure and in our professions, mobile computing is no longer merely "exciting;" it is becoming an essential, ubiquitous tool of the modern world. New and innovative mobile applications continue to inform, entertain, and surprise users. But, to make the daily use of mobile technologies more gratifying and worthwhile, we must move forward with new levels of sophistication. The Mobile App Stores of the future must be built on stronger foundations. </p><p>This dissertation considers a broad view of the challenges and intuitions behind a diverse selection of such new primitives. Some of these primitives will mitigate existing and fundamental challenges of mobile computing, especially relating to wireless communication. Others will take an application-driven approach, being designed to serve a novel purpose, and be adapted to the unique and varied challenges from their disparate domains. However, all are related through a unifying goal, to provide a seamless, enjoyable, and productive mobile experience. This dissertation takes view that by bringing together nontrivial enhancements across a selection of disparate-but-interrelated domains, the impact is synergistically stronger than the sum of each in isolation. Through their collective impact, these new "building blocks" can help lay a foundation to upgrade mobile technology beyond the expectations of early-adopters, and into seamless integration with all of our lives.</p> en_US
