- For the same reason, arithmetic encoding performs better for general probability distributions, as in the last case above.
- :: : Oh and have a look at arithmetic encoding although it doesn't really help your integer situation curse you tiredness it works fine.
- This is also an example of how statistical coding methods like arithmetic encoding can produce an output message that is larger than the input message, especially if the probability model is off.
- Range coding is very similar to arithmetic encoding, except that encoding is done with digits in any base, instead of with bits, and so it is faster when using larger bases ( e . g . a byte ) at small cost in compression efficiency.
