2 Huffman as a Back-End Coder Huffman coding has been used as a back-end coder in a variety of data compression schemes. The common theme is the division of instance streams into events with a large number of outcomes whose probabilities are roughly even. Huffman codes tend to perform well with large alphabets and this fact can be exploited by constructing source alphabets of words rather than characters. McCarthy[Mccarthy73] described a compression technique which maps strings onto Huffman codes.

Extends to the end of the enclosing construct. 3 The Problem of Data Compression Shannon's model presents the problem of data compression as that of constructing transmitters and receivers that can translate between compressed and uncompressed representations. It is worth spending some time elaborating upon this problem for, as history has shown, the manner in which the problem is approached radically affects the solutions that are apparent. 1 Real vs Quantized Information Shannon devised a measure for the quantity of information H that knowledge of the occurrence of an event of probability p yields.

Shannon soon discovered a nearly-suitable coding technique. Fano simultaneously discovered it 20 and it has become known as the ShannonFano coding technique. The messages are sorted by probability and then subdivided recursively at as close to power of two boundaries as possible. 21 This technique yields an average code length (in bits) of [H, H + 1) where H is the entropy of the set of source messages. The Shannon-Fano coding technique, though efficient, was not optimal. Very soon, Huffman proposed a variation that was optimal[Huffman52].
