Approaches to Compression

Part of the Undergraduate Topics in Computer Science book series (UTICS)

How can a given a data file be compressed? Compression amounts to eliminating the redundancy in the data, so the first step is to find the source of redundancy in each type of data. Once we understand what causes redundancy in a given type of data, we can propose an approach to eliminating the redundancy.
