Lapack and Blas

I am a beginner with R. I am working with Rstudio on Windows. I would like to download some library as Lapack or Blas, because R is too slow when it comes to make a heavy usage of vector/matrix operations. I tried:


Installing package into ‘C:/Users/cristina/AppData/Roaming/SPB_Data/R/win-library/3.6’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :
package ‘blas’ is not available (for R version 3.6.3)
So what should i do to improve performance?

Blas and Lapack are not R packages, you can't install them that way, you have to install them in your system and configure R to use them. This is pretty easy to accomplish on Linux but Not so much on Windows, I have never even tried but hopefully someone else here can give you instructions.

Do you know if there is a package that can optimize the performance when it comes to calculate vector/matrix?
