During the last decade, CD-quality digital audio has essentially replaced analog audio. Emerging digital audio applications for network, wireless, and multimedia computing systems face a series of constraints such as reduced channel bandwidth, limited storage capacity, and low cost. These new applications have created a demand for high-quality digital audio delivery at low bit rates. In response to this need, considerable research has been devoted to the development of algorithms for… 
Perceptual Coding of Audio Signals Using Adaptive Time-Frequency Transform
TLDR
This paper proposes one such transform-based compression technique, where the joint time-frequency properties of the nonstationary nature of the audio signals were exploited in creating a compact energy representation of the signal in fewer coefficients.
Audio Coding Standards, (Proprietary) Audio Compression Algorithms, and Broadcasting/Speech/Data Communication Codecs: Overview of Adopted Filter Banks
TLDR
Perceptual transform-based audio coding schemes developed up to now are briefly reviewed including the family of ISO/IEC MPEG audio coding standards, proprietary audio compression algorithms, broadcasting/speech/data communication codecs, as well as open-free, patent royalty-free audio/speech codecs.
Low delay audio coding based on logarithmic spherical vector quantization
TLDR
The developed approaches for low delay audio coding significantly outperform standardized audio codecs with a comparable algorithmic delay and bit rate, e.g., the ITU-T G.722 audio codec, in terms of a higher subjective quality for speech and particularly audio signals.
High-Fidelity Multichannel Audio Coding
TLDR
The objective of this book was to present several innovative compression techniques for multichannel audio sources and publish it as a research monograph, but the coverage is extended by including more background material to make it a senior undergraduate or a graduate level textbook on advanced audio coding techniques.
Perceptual Audio Coding Using Sinusoidal/Optimum Wavelet Representation
AbstractA perceptual audio coder, in which each audio segment is adaptively analyzed using either a sinusoidal or an optimum wavelet basis according to the time-varying characteristics of the audio
Perceptual Audio Coding
MPEG Audio Compression
TLDR
This chapter looks in some detail at audio compression as it benefits from psychoacoustics, and how this plays out in MPEG-1 Audio Compression and later MPEG audio developments: MPEG-2 and 4 including MPEG Advanced Audio Coding (AAC).
Combined speech and audio coding with bit rate and bandwidth scalability
TLDR
This thesis proposes a single algorithm for compressing speech and audio signals sampled at different rates based on the analysis-by-synthesis linear prediction coding (AbS-LPC) scheme, which provides bandwidth and bit rate scalability ranging from 12 to 64kb/s, making it ideal for deployment in rate-adaptive communication systems.

A novel switched filter-bank scheme which switches between a modified discrete cosine transform and a wavelet filter- bank based on the signal characteristics is proposed which allows for the optimum exploitation of perceptual irrelevancies.
Digital audio coding for visual communications
TLDR
Basic approaches to speech, wideband speech, and audio bit rate compressions in audiovisual communications are explained and it will become obvious that the use of the knowledge of auditory perception helps minimizing perception of coding artifacts and leads to efficient low bit rate coding algorithms which can achieve substantially more compression than was thought possible only a few years ago.
