Data Compression Systems
One of the paradoxes of modern computer systems is that despite the spiraling decrease in storage cost there is an ever increasing emphasis on date compression. We use compression daily, often without even being aware of it, when we use facsimile machines, communication networks, digital cellular telephones, world-wide web browsers, and DVD players. Indeed, on some computer system, the moment we access a file from disk we make use of compression technology; and not too far in the future are computer architectures that store executable code in compressed form in main memory in lines of few hundred bytes, decompressing it only when brought into cache.
