|Abstract||In our model, a graph describes a net of processes communicating through ports and, at the same time, its computation history consisting of a partial ordering of events. Stand-alone evolution of processes is specified by context-free productions. From productions and a basic synchronization mechanism, a set of context-sensitive rewriting rules that models the evolution of processes connected to the same ports can be derived. A computation is a sequence of graphs obtained by successive rewritings. The result of a finite computation is its last graph, whereas the result of an infinite computation is the limit, infinite graph defined through a completion technique based on metric spaces. A result characterizes a concurrent computation, since it abstracts from any particular interleaving of concurrent events, while in the meantime providing information about termination, partial or complete deadlocks, and fairness. Not every result is acceptable, however, but only the computations that produce a result no longer rewritable are successful. Infinite successful computations are shown to coincide with weakly fair computations, and a scheduler yielding all and only such computations is defined.|

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.
