Introduction to Data Compression, Third Edition, is a concise and comprehensive guide to data compression. This book introduces the reader to the theory underlying today's compression techniques with detailed instruction for their applications using several examples to explain the concepts. Encompassing the entire field of data compression, it covers lossless and lossy compression, Huffman coding, arithmetic coding, dictionary techniques, context based compression, scalar and vector quantization. It includes all the cutting edge updates the reader will need during the work day and in class.

This edition adds new content on the topic of audio compression including a description of the mp3 algorithm, along with a new video coding standard and new facsimile standard explained. It explains in detail established and emerging standards in depth including JPEG 2000, JPEG-LS, MPEG-2, Group 3 and 4 faxes, JBIG 2, ADPCM, LPC, CELP, and MELP. Source code is provided via a companion web site that gives readers the opportunity to build their own algorithms, choose and implement techniques in their own applications.

This book will appeal to professionals, software and hardware engineers, students, and to anyone interested in digital libraries and multimedia.
