Algorithms are presented here by category :

- Statistical Coders (8-1-96, Read this first).
- Dictionary Coders (created 4-1-98)
- Markov-Model Predictive Coders Modified (1-1-98)
- Image Compression (not available yet/still!)
- A bunch of reports on various algorithms Includes reports on some LZCBs, various context coders, and more. Rather messy and not well documented...

If you are a beginner in compression, read the following books:

T. Bell, J. Cleary, and I. Witten, Text Compression , Prentice Hall, 1990

If Text Compression is too much for you, the following book gives a much slower presentation of the material, with a lot more explanation. I didn't understand the explanation of arithmetic encoding in Text Compression , but it was completely clear in the following:

Mark Nelson, The Data Compression Book , M&T Books, 1992
