WAVELET IMAGE AND VIDEO COMPRESSION
edited by: Pankaj N. Topiwala

An exciting new development has taken place in the digital era that
has captured the imagination and talent of researchers around the
globe - wavelet image compression. This technology has deep roots in
theories of vision, and promises performance improvements over all
other compression methods, such as those based on Fourier transforms,
vectors quantizers, fractals, neural nets, and many others. It is this
revolutionary new technology that is presented in Wavelet Image and
Video Compression, in a form that is accessible to the largest
audience possible.

Wavelet Image and Video Compression is divided into four parts. Part
I, Background Material, introduces the basic mathematical structures
that underly image compression algorithms with the intention of
providing an easy introduction to the mathematical concepts that are
prerequisites for the remainder of the book. It explains such topics
as change of bases, scalar and vector quantization, bit allocation and
rate-distortion theory, entropy coding, the discrete-cosine transform,
wavelet filters and other related topics. Part II, Still Image Coding,
presents a spectrum of wavelet still image coding schemes with a
special flavor in either approach or application domain. Part IV,
Video Coding, examines wavelet and pyramidal coding techniques for
video data.

Wavelet Image and Video Compression serves as an excellent reference
and may be used as a text for advanced courses covering the subject.
