It is likely that in these two cases, the backslash operator thinks the matrix structure (probably symmetry) is different and ends up with a different and expensive step. This is just a guess without looking at the actual matrices. > > Rakesh
I agree with Rakesh. If you want to pursue this matter further, then what I would suggest is to put a debugging breakpoint on line 178 of the LM function, run the code with the original M file objective function and then with the MEX objective function, and in each case when it stops at the breakpoint save the AugJac and AugRes variables to a .mat file. Then create a support request at The Mathworks, include the two M files, and tell them to run 'tic, AugJac \ AugRes;, toc' with the contents of each .mat file and ask for their help in explaining the difference. Good luck!
