Abstract

Binary sequences are constructed that are fully compressible by one infinite memory form of Lempel-Ziv, yet cannot be compressed by other infinite memory forms. The constructions make use of de Bruijn sequences.

Keywords

Binary Sequence Individual Sequence Final Block Short Block Ergodic Process 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
