LZ-Compressed String Dictionaries

  title={LZ-Compressed String Dictionaries},
  author={Julian Arz and Johannes H Fischer},
  journal={2014 Data Compression Conference},
We show how to compress string dictionaries using Lempel-Ziv (LZ78) data compression. Our approach is validated experimentally on dictionaries of up to 1.5 GB of uncompressed text. We achieve compression ratios often outperforming the existing alternatives, especially on dictionaries containing many repeated substrings. Our query times remain competitive.
