» I believe this implies that matrix inversion is done in a clever fashion in R's solve function; as you pointed out PharmCat inversion can be slow (and unstable) as matrices get large, but perhaps the LAPACK routine used by R reduces the task intelligently, possibly through some of the same tricks described for e.g. the Alglib routines..

It is very good question to explore. If we suppose that some routine knows something about structure it should make big work to recognize block-diagonal or/and symmetric matrix structure.

I think, main cause is a overhead for each function call. Another problem - many intermediate products for %*%

Every man gets a narrower and narrower field of knowledge
in which he must be an expert in order to compete with other people.
The specialist knows more and more about less and less
and finally knows everything about nothing.    Konrad Lorenz
