There are numerous scenarios in source coding where not only the code length but the importance of each value should also be taken into account. Different from the traditional coding theorems, by adding the importance weights for the length of the codes, we define the average cost of the weighted codeword length as an importance-aware measure of the codes. This novel information theoretical measure generalizes the average codeword length by assigning importance weights for each symbol according… CONTINUE READING
