|Abstract||Simulating asynchronous multiple-loop networks is commonly considered a difficult task for parallel programming. Two examples of asynchronous multiple-loop networks are presented in this article: a stylized queuing system and an Ising model. In both cases, the network is an n × n grid on a torus and includes at least an order of n2 feedback loops. A new distributed simulation algorithm is demonstrated on these two examples. The algorithm combines three elements: (1) the bounded lag restriction; (2) minimum propagation delays; and (3) the so-called opaque periods. We prove that if N processing elements (PEs) execute the algorithm in parallel and the simulated system exhibits sufficient density of events, then, on average, processing one event would require O(log N) instructions of one PE. Experiments on a shared memory MIMD bus computer (Sequent's Balance) and on a SIMD computer (Connection Machine) show speed-ups greater than 16 on 25 PEs of a Balance and greater than1900 on 214 PEs of a Connection Machine.|

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.
