Example text

Dictionary-based compression methods exploit the fact that a typical data file is not random; it features patterns and repetitions. At any point during compression, the input file is divided into two parts, data that has been compressed (this is kept in a data structure called the dictionary) and data that still has to be input and compressed. Assume that the latter part starts with the string of symbols abcd. . The encoder searches the dictionary for this string, and locates the longest match.

N The inequality is satisfied, so such a code is UD. A more interesting example is the case of n symbols where the first one is compressed and the second one is expanded. We set L1 = log2 n − a, L2 = log2 n + e, and L3 = L4 = · · · = Ln = log2 n, where a and e are positive. We show that e > a, which means that compressing a symbol by a factor a requires expanding another symbol by a larger factor. We can benefit from this only if the probability of the compressed symbol is greater than that of the expanded symbol.

The difference between the various dictionary methods is in how they organize and search the dictionary and how they deal with strings not found in the dictionary. A transform is a mathematical operation that changes the representation of a data item. Thus, changing the decimal number 12,345 to the binary 11000000111001 is a transform. Correlated data symbols such as the pixels of an image or the audio samples of a sound file, can be transformed to representations where they require fewer bits. This sounds like getting something for nothing, but in fact there is a price to pay.
