About The Author
"The author is experienced and has authored the very successful Data Compression: The Complete Guide, Fourth Edition * Clear, reader-friendly style The required level of mathematics is minimal Specifically written for undergraduates, to cover foundations of Data Compression An author-maintained website, containing errata and auxiliary material complements the book Compressing data is an option naturally selected when faced with problems of high costs or restricted space. Written by a renowned expert in the field, this book offers readers a succinct, reader-friendly foundation to the chief approaches, methods and techniques currently employed in the field of data compression. Part I presents the basic approaches to data compression and describes a few popular techniques and methods commonly used to compress data. The reader discovers essential concepts, such as variable-length and prefix codes, statistical distributions and run-length encoding. Part II then concentrates on advanced techniques, such as arithmetic coding, orthogonal transforms, subband transforms and the Burrows-Wheeler transform. Features: Clear overview of the principles underlying this field Outlines the essentials of the various approaches to compressing data Contains many learning aids such as: chapter introductions and summaries, chapter-end exercises, comprehensive glossary, etc. Provides several examples of important compression algorithms Offers a supplementary author-maintained website, with errata and auxiliary material www.davidsalomon.name/DCugAdvertis/DCug.html An ideal introductory volume to David Salomons fourth edition of Data Compression: The Complete Reference Complete and clear, this book is the perfect resource for undergraduates in computer science and requires a minimum of mathematics. It is also ideal for readers with a basic knowledge of computer science wanting to learn about data compression. "
Part I: Basic Concepts - Approaches to Compression - Huffman Coding - Dictionary Methods -Part II: Advanced Techniques - Arithmetic Coding - Image Compression - Audio Compression - Other Methods - Bibliography - Glossary - Solutions to Puzzles - Answers to Exercises - Index.
David Salomon is a professor emeritus of Computer Science at California State University, Northridge. He has authored numerous articles and books, including Coding for Data and Computer Communications, Guide to Data Compression Methods, Data Privacy and Security, Computer Graphics and Geometric Modeling, Foundations of Computer Security, Transformations and Projections in Computer Graphics, and Variable-length Codes for Data Compression.
"This book on data compression can be considered an introductory one into a part of coding theory. can be used by students who want to understand a general description of data compression and some of the important themes in this domain. In each part exercises are provided, and solutions for them can be found at the end of the book. Overall, the book is particularly suitable for undergraduate students to be used for laboratory purposes." (Nicolae Constantinescu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1147, 2008) "This book provides an overview of compression methods in general, and goes into a fair amount of detail for some specific algorithms in use. On the whole, this could be a useful book for a short course on compression at the undergraduate level, and would provide students with a taste for the material." (Jeffrey Putnam, ACM Computing Reviews, December, 2008)
