Abstract: Mobile grid is an infrastructure that adds mobile service in conventional wired grid, so as to implement sharing with heterogeneity, distributed grid resources at anytime, anywhere and anyhow. Mobile grid technology combines mobile computing and grid computing, and it is developing rapidly. We discuss and analyse mobile grid architecture and resource managing methods currently, and put forward a logical architecture of mobile grid and its application; we also discuss and design the mechanism of resource selection and assignment based on client requests. We think that mobile grid can match the client requests and grid resources by pulling or pushing and adjust resource assignment by related factors.

Keywords: mobile grid architecture; wireless; resource selection; resource assignment; mobile services; m-services; mobile computing; grid computing.
