It is best to avoid loops when programming in R. There are two reasons for this: simplifying code and computational speed-up. Many mathematical computations on lists, vectors, or arrays may be performed without loops using component-wise arithmetic. The code below demonstrates the computational speedup resulting from replacing a loop with vectorized code:
