Abstract: A data compression and decompression technique compresses a binary stream of digital data into compressed form and decompresses a compressed data stream into decompressed form without any loss of fidelity. The techniques require very little processing time to permit compression and decompression of digital data quickly. Once the digital data is compressed into compressed form, the amount of memory required to store the compressed digital data is much less than the amount of memory required to store the corresponding data in uncompressed form.
