Hello, Can we use 'parfor' in used defined functions? I want to use parfor in user defined functions to improve the speed of my code but its not working. Is there any way we can use it?

That use of parfor is not permitted because the output would depend upon which iteration ran last. You need either assign to an indexed variable or you need to use a reduction variable (for example totaling the values of the individual iterations)

Yes, for sure you can, provided that you have the parallel computing toolbox installed and licensed
