Overview

Compression and Coding Algorithms describes in detail the coding mechanisms that are available for use in data compression systems. The well known Huffman coding technique is one mechanism, but there have been many others developed over the past few decades, and this book describes, explains and assesses them. People undertaking research of software development in the areas of compression and coding algorithms will find this book an indispensable reference. In particular, the careful and detailed description of algorithms and their implementation, plus accompanying pseudo-code that can be readily implemented on computer, make this book a definitive reference in an area currently without one.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Moffat (U. of Melbourne) and Turpin (Curtin U. of Technology, Australia) examine a wide range of mechanisms that have been proposed for coding in data compression systems, covering some fifty years of methods and algorithms. The text emphasizes the practicalities of implementation and execution. It includes descriptions of recent improvements to widely-known methods, such as minimum-redundancy (Huffman) coding and arithmetic coding, and coding problems with additional constraints, such as length-limited, alphabetic, and unequal letter-cost coding. Also discussed are three state-of-the-art compression systems, including descriptions of the type of coders employed and the reasons for that choice. For graduate and advanced graduate students, researchers, and software engineers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
