## Frequency Coding Draft Paper

I have attached a draft paper explaining the math behind frequency coding, a method of lossless data compression I came up with. The algorithm has been tested as I have freely available computer source code for anyone who wants to test it. The … Continue reading

## Frequency Coding

The source code below is a bit coder class that can be used for reading or writing a compressed file. The source code provides access to a new type of entropy encoder. This new type of coder uses an algorithm … Continue reading

## Part 2 – Encoding a simple value

For the second part, we will encode a simple 4 bit integer value – let’s use the the 4 bit integer 6 to encode, this is our “message”. The integer six has a 4 bit binary value of 0110. To help … Continue reading

## Part 1 – Introduction to a simple bit encoder

To start off in the first part our series we will take a look at the properties of a 4 bit integer to help imagine where our simple bit encoder comes from. For purposes of encoding and decoding data we … Continue reading
