Entropy Encoding in Wavelet Image Compression

  • Myung-Sin Song
Part of the Applied and Numerical Harmonic Analysis book series (ANHA)


Entropy encoding is a method of lossless compression that is performed on an image after the quantization stage. It enables one to represent an image in a more efficient way with less memory needed for storage or transmission. In this chapter, we will explore various schemes of entropy encoding and how they work mathematically where applicable.
