I have just started using mathematica and am having
problems creating efficient programs. For example,
the creation of a list of elements using the Table
function does not take an expected linear running
time. I suspect that Mathematica rewrites the entire
table after each iteration of assigning a value to
each position.
In C++, I am quite familiar with memory allocation and
preventing such problems from occuring. What I need,
then, is a detailed book of some sort that gives
me the information I need to write efficient programs.

Thank you,
Max
