Asymmetric numeral systems: entropy coding combining speed of Huffman coding with compression rate of arithmetic coding

11 Nov 2013Jarek Duda

The modern data compression is mainly based on two approaches to entropy coding: Huffman (HC) and arithmetic/range coding (AC). The former is much faster, but approximates probabilities with powers of 2, usually leading to relatively low compression rates... (read more)
