I have been doing research on entropy encoding for some time.. I found some interesting relationships between Arithmetic coding and other methods such as Huffman Coding. I made an article to explain them and am presenting here for review:




I have also attached a PDF version for convenience Attached File  Arithmetic_Coding_Formula_based_approach.pdf   612.85KB   91 downloads.


Please let me know your ideas.

Hi there,


One comment, not really relevant to the content, is that you may want to substitute your references to wikipedia articles with references to some expository textbook (like EoIT) or surveys describing uses of Huffman and Arithmetic coding. There's usually actually such references on the Wikipedia pages themselves.


Otherwise I'm not too familiar with the usual approach, but your work looks interesting!

The above quotation is almost true for me.
