How to run COMSOL
COMSOL is installed on maya, but we have not come up with the best way to
execute it yet. The complication is that the way in which COMSOL is run
has just changed due to a lawsuit between MathWorks (the makers of Matlab)
and the COMSOL Group. Contact our support personnel if you want more
For more information about the software itself, see
Before using COMSOL, the appropriate module must be loaded.
[araim1@maya-usr1 ~]$ module load comsol
If having trouble with the display of COMSOL in the plotting area, possibly
the graphical rendering setting is not correct. Go to the menu "Options",
"Preferences", then the "Graphics" tab. Change rendering from
"OpenGL" to "software".
