Data compression conference; proceedings.0769525458 Data compression data compression Process of reducing the amount of data needed for storage or transmission of a given piece of information (text, graphics, video, sound, etc.), typically by use of encoding techniques. conference; proceedings. Data Compression Conference (2006: Snowbird, Utah Snowbird is a locale based in Little Cottonwood Canyon in the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains in Utah. It is perhaps most famous for the Snowbird ski resort, an alpine skiing and snowboarding area, which opened in December 1971. ) Ed. by James A. Storer and Martin Cohn. Computer Society Press 2006 474 pages $213.00 Hardcover QA76.9 Proving you can always do more in less, these proceedings of the March 2006 conference includes the papers of the technical sessions and abstracts of the posters. Topics of representative session papers include a source coding theory Coding theory is a branch of mathematics and computer science dealing with the errorprone process of transmitting data across noisy channels, via clever means, so that a large number of errors that occur can be corrected. for sets, new lower and upper bounds on the expected length of optical onetoone codes, efficient quantizer designs for robust distributed source coding and a practical approach to joint networksource coding, optical prefix codes for some families of twodimensional geometric distributions, fast compression of scientific floatingpoint data without loss, low density codes that achieve the rate distortion bound, compression by the suffix tree In computer science, a suffix tree (also called PAT tree or, in an earlier form, position tree) is a certain data structure that presents the suffixes of a given string in a way that allows for a particularly fast implementation of many important string operations. , vector quantization with model selection, optical index assignment for multiple description of lattice vector quantization, a fast and low complexity image condec based on the backward coding of wavelet (mathematics) wavelet  A waveform that is bounded in both frequency and duration. Wavelet tranforms provide an alternative to more traditional Fourier transforms used for analysing waveforms, e.g. sound. trees and a methods of making the correct mistakes.
