Abstract

A general-purpose implementation for minimum-redundancy codes based on arbitrary probability distributions has been described in and simple implementations for codes based on monotonic probability distributions have been described in. Especially simple implementations have been devised for specific monotonic distribution, such as the Zipf's Distribution disclosed in [3].
