A method of dynamically constructing Markov chain models that describe the characteristics of binary messages is developed. Such models can be used to predict future message characters and can therefore be used as a basis for data compression. To this end, the Markov modelling technique is combined with Guazzo's arithmetic coding scheme to produce a powerful method of data compression. The method has the advantage of being adaptive: messages may be encoded or decoded with just a single pass… CONTINUE READING
