Groups included in the 2018-19 license pool: Bamieh, Blumenthal, Bowers, Campas, Dressaire, Foster, Hawkes, Luzzatto-Fegiz, Meinhart, Moody, D. Patterson, Pennathur, Sauret, Sepunaru, Theogarajan, Visell, and Zhu.
COMSOL System Requirements:
- COMSOL runs with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems.
- An active network connection to obtain a lcense from the pool. And the UCSB VPN client of off campus access.
- Users who buy into the license pool can also run the software on the CNSI Center for Scientific Computing clusters.
- Full details regarding system requirements can be found at: https://www.comsol.com/system-requirements
Cost distribution: Each research group participating in the pool pays an equal share of the total license.
