Mobile cloud computing is a new paradigm to improve the quality of mobile services, which has drawn considerable attentions in both industrial and academic fields. In this paper, we consider the resource management and sharing problems for radio and computing resources to support mobile applications in mobile cloud computing. In such an environment, service providers can cooperate to form coalition to share their idle resources with each other. We propose a coalition game model based on two-sided matching theory. The coalition game model efficiently reflects the scalable cooperation among the service providers for sharing their idle resources. As a result, the resources can be better utilized and the quality of service for users can be improved. The simulation results indicate that our scheme can optimize the resource utilization and significantly
improve the quality of service of the users.
