Overview

"Each edition of Introduction to Data Compression has widely been considered the best introduction and reference text on the art and science of data compression, and the third edition continues in this tradition. Data compression techniques and technology are ever-evolving with new applications in image, speech, text, audio, and video. The third edition includes all the cutting-edge updates the reader will need during the work day and in class." Khalid Sayood provides an extensive introduction to the theory underlying today's compression techniques with detailed instruction for their applications using several examples to explain the concepts. Encompassing the entire field of data compression Introduction to Data Compression, includes lossless and lossy compression, Huffman coding, arithmetic coding, dictionary techniques, context based compression, scalar and vector quantization. Khalid Sayood provides a working knowledge of data compression, giving the reader the tools to develop a complete and concise compression package upon completion of his book.

Comprehensive discussion of lossless and lossy compression techniques emphasizing current applications. Explains Huffman and arithmetic coding, lossless image compression, scalar and vector quantization, differential encoding, subband/transform coding and video compression. Clarifies the theory underlying compression algorithms. Discusses the group 3 and 4 fax standards, and JPEC, MPEG, G.728, H.261 compression standards. Interesting discussion of dictionary techniques, weak points and and variants of existing algorithms. A university text.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This text is a truly introductory treatment of the entire field of data compression, including lossless coding, speech coding, and audio coding, which are often neglected in other data compression books. Sayood’s book has the very best tutorial treatment of lossless source coding anywhere, with detailed coverage of Lempel-Ziv, arithmetic, Golumb, and Tunstall coding, in addition to treatments of fixed and adaptive Huffman coding and context-based methods. Additionally, the book contains material on M-band quadrature mirror filter banks, the polyphase decomposition, and wavelets beyond what is normally found in any introductory text. I have used Sayood’s book for a reference and as a text for a course on signal compression. I highly recommend it for adoption.

-Jerry D. Gibson, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, Santa Barbara

Khalid Sayood's book has long been the standard academic reference for those interested in Data Compression. I am very pleased to see his ongoing effort to keep the content timely with the release of the fourth edition this fall. If you want to be well versed in state of the art, ranging from simple lossless coding up to complex video compression, this is the only book I know that will stay with you on every step of the journey.

-Mark Nelson, Engineer at Cisco Systems, Inc and Senior Member of IEEE
