Huffman/Lempel-Ziv Compression Methods

  • W. J. Buchanan


Normally, general data compression does not take into account the type of data which is being compressed and is lossless. It can be applied to computer data files, documents, images, and so on. The two main techniques are statistical coding and repetitive sequence suppression. This chapter discusses two of the most widely used methods for general data compression: Huffman coding and Lempel-Ziv coding.
