Introduction to Data Compression, Fourth Edition, is a concise and comprehensive guide to the art and science of data compression. This new edition includes all the cutting edge updates the reader will need during the work day and in class. It 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, this book covers lossless and lossy compression, Huffman coding, arithmetic coding, dictionary techniques, context based compression, scalar and vector quantization. New to this fourth edition is a more detailed description of the JPEG 2000 standard as well as speech coding for internet applications. A source code is also provided via a companion web site that gives readers the opportunity to build their own algorithms, choose and implement techniques in their own applications.
This text will appeal to professionals, software and hardware engineers, students, and anyone interested in digital libraries and multimedia.
