Representations of Data in Mathematica
If I enter a list in Mathematica, its internal representation may be different from the
The basic common representation for lists (and all expressions) is given by the
Each integer you see in the list is itself an expression. Internally in the Mathematica C code, the data stored carries information about the type of the expression (in this case, list, or number, which is a machine integer).
