|Abstract||The SKA and its precursors will open a new era in the observation of cosmic magnetic fields and help to understand their origin. In the SKADS polarization simulation project, maps of polarized intensity and RM of the Milky Way, galaxies and halos of galaxy clusters were constructed, and the possibilities to measure the evolution of magnetic fields in these objects were investigated. The SKA will map interstellar magnetic fields in nearby galaxies and intracluster fields in nearby clusters in unprecedented detail. All-sky surveys of Faraday rotation measures (RM) towards a dense grid of polarized background sources with the SKA and ASKAP (POSSUM) are dedicated to measure magnetic fields in distant intervening galaxies, cluster halos and intergalactic filaments, and will be used to model the overall structure and strength of the magnetic fields in the Milky Way and beyond. Simple patterns of regular fields in galaxies or cluster relics can be recognized to about 100 Mpc distance, ordered fields in unresolved galaxies or cluster relics to redshifts of z \simeq 0.5, turbulent fields in starburst galaxies or cluster halos to z \simeq 3, and regular fields in intervening galaxies towards QSOs to z \simeq 5.|
|Learning Resource Type||Article|
National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built 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 designed 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 developed, operated and maintained from 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 Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
