So, FEMLAB was a MATLAB toolbox, and eventually spun off to become

current, very popular finite element analysis tool Comsol

Multiphysics. I think that transition happened around 2005, so

finding specific support for 'FEMLAB' might be difficult.

Did this textbook provide scripts to be run with FEMLAB itself (e.g.,

example model files), or did it actually provide a copy of the FEMLAB

toolbox? It may be possible to set up a version of the old FEMLAB

toolbox to run under octave if all of the scripts are compatible, but

I have never heard of anyone doing so.
