OCaml for Scientists and the latest article in the OCaml Journal describe how 
to consume functors (most notably the Set.Make and Map.Make functors) but not 
how to create functors. Future OCaml Journal articles will cover functors in 
more detail.

Also, OCaml for Scientists describes performance considerations and 
optimizations in great deal, with some discussion of defunctorization and 
measurements and discussion of the performance of the Set and Map modules 
(and Hashtbl).
