Hello huda, there are no nested parfor loops. Parallelization with parfor only works on the outermost loop.

ok, do u mean it is not problem if i use parfor for outermost loop and the inside loop stay as it.
I just wonder because when I used parfor for only outermost loop, I did not find any improvement in terms of running time.
Please, I badly need that.

To combine the loops into a single parfor loop,
parfor k=1:10

yes, but I read if I have large array it is best to use spmd.
this function will distribute the array among workers.
but I have problem. Also I used pmode .
I did not find the efficiency of these functions. I hope to find simple example show me the difference between parallel and serial processing.
