Some notes on the context mapping function in lossless data compression

Nicklas Ekstrand, Ben Smeets

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


One of the major challenges when applying (serial) universal source coding to 2-dimensional data, e.g., images, is to determine suitable context data. For this reason the concept of Context Mapping Function (CMF) has been introduced. In this paper we discuss the foundation for CMFs as well an off-line construction method via a combinatorial optimization method.
