|Abstract||We present a novel approach to parallel discrete event simulation based on the Cilk model of multithreaded computation. Cilk's runtime system not only manages the low-level aspects of program execution, but also provides the user with an algorithmic model of performance which can be used to predict the execution time of a parallel simulation. Moreover, a Cilk application can ``scale down'' to run on a single processor with nearly the same performance as that of serial code.A conservative parallel discrete event simulation algorithm has been developed in which communication between logical processes is achieved using Cilk's virtual memory model, dag consistent shared memory. The simulation executes in cycles, where each cycle involves a divide and conquer computation. Although local lookahead information can be exploited, the algorithm is robust in that it also calculates a global simulation time for each cycle. It can therefore be used for applications where zero lookahead may occur.|

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 (NDLI) 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. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, 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. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI 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 the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
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 (NDLI) project.
