A Concise Introduction to Data Compression (Undergraduate Topics in Computer Science)

Compressing data is an option naturally selected when faced with problems of high costs or restricted space. Written by a renowned expert in the field, this book offers readers a succinct, reader-friendly foundation to the chief approaches, methods and techniques currently employed in the field of data compression.

Part I presents the basic approaches to data compression and describes a few popular techniques and methods commonly used to compress data. The reader discovers essential concepts, such as variable-length and prefix codes, statistical distributions and run-length encoding. Part II then concentrates on advanced techniques, such as arithmetic coding, orthogonal transforms, subband transforms and the Burrows-Wheeler transform.


Clear overview of the principles underlying this field

Outlines the essentials of the various approaches to compressing data

Contains many learning aids such as: chapter introductions and summaries, chapter-end exercises, comprehensive glossary, etc.

Provides several examples of important compression algorithms

Offers a supplementary author-maintained website, with errata and auxiliary material www.davidsalomon.name/DCugAdvertis/DCug.html

Web Caching and Its Applications (The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science)
Web Caching and Its Applications (The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science)
The last decade has seen tremendous growth in usage of the World Wide Web. Web caching is a technology aimed at reducing the transmission of redundant network traffic and improving access to the Web. The key idea in Web caching is to cache frequently- accessed content so that it may be used profitably later. This leads to cost savings, reduction in...

Flash MX Application & Interface Design

The days of Flash as a creative luxury are long gone. After months of downsizing, Flash creativity has been on a huge rationalization program. It is no longer enough to present animation in millions of colors and a hundred transparencies. It is no longer sufficient to provide interactivity and dynamism for their own sake.

Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit Design (Artech House Microwave Library)
Radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) design is an exciting area for research
or product development. Technologies are constantly being improved, and as
they are, circuits formerly implemented as discrete solutions can now be integrated
onto a single chip. In addition to widely used applications such as cordless
phones and
