I am new to Matlab and am trying to figure out an alternative way to multiply an inverse matrix J (2x2) by some f (2x1) other than using J\f. Here is what I have so far, however when I run it, it says that H is an unrecognized function or variable:
J_inv=inv(J);
for i=1:iter
H(J_inv,f)=J_inv*f;
end
Thanks in advance!

Not sure why you have a for-loop at all. Maybe you can explain this. If you just want to multiply the explicit inverse by a vector, just do it:
J_inv = inv(J);
f = your column vector
H = J_inv * f;

If you want a loop, then this outline:
m = size(J_inv,1); % number of rows of J_inv
for k=1:m
H(k) = ____; % insert dot product of J_inv k'th row and f vector here
end
I've left a bit of coding for you to do.
