|Abstract||We present the UBVRc I c broad-band optical photometry of the type Ic supernova SN 2002ap obtained during 2002 February 6–March 23 in the early decline phases and also later on 2002 August 15. Combining these data with the published ones, the general light-curve development is studied. The time and luminosity of the peak brightness and the peak width are estimated. There is a flattening in the optical light curve about 30 d after the B maximum. The flux decline rates before flattening are 0.127 ± 0.005, 0.082 ± 0.001, 0.074 ± 0.001, 0.062 ± 0.001 and 0.040 ± 0.001 mag d−1 in U, B, V, Rc and I c passbands respectively, while the corresponding values after flattening are about 0.02 mag d−¹ in all the passbands. The maximum brightness of SN 2002ap, MV = −17.2 mag, is comparable to that of the type Ic 1997ef, but fainter than that of the type Ic hypernova SN 1998bw. The peak luminosity indicates an ejection of ~0.06M๏ ⁵⁶Ni mass. We also present low-resolution optical spectra obtained during the early phases. The Si II absorption minimum indicates that the photospheric velocity decreased from ~21 360 km s−¹ to ~10 740 km s−1 during a period of ~6 d.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
