|Abstract||A model for parallel computations is given as a directed graph in which nodes represent elementary operations, and branches, data channels. The problem considered is the determination of an admissible schedule for such a computation; i.e. for each node determine a sequence of times at which the node initiates its operation. These times must be such that each node, upon initiation, is assured of having the necessary data upon which to operate. Necessary and sufficient conditions that a schedule be admissible are given. The computation rate of a given admissible schedule is defined and is shown to have a limiting value 1/π where π is a parameter dependent upon the cycles in the graph. Thus, the computation cannot proceed at a rate exceeding 1/π. For γ ≥ π, the class of all periodic admissible schedules with period γ is characterized by the solution space of a certain system of linear inequalities. In particular, then, the maximum computation rate of 1/π is attainable under a periodic admissible schedule with period π. A class of all-integer admissible schedules is given. Finally, an algorithm is given for the determination of the number of initiations of each node in the graph defining a parallel computation.An example for a system of difference equations is given in detail.|

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.
