Thomas A Courtade Tsachy Weissman, "Multiterminal Source Coding under Logarithmic Loss".  Jul 2012

We consider the two-encoder multiterminal source coding problem subject to distortion constraints computed under logarithmic loss. We provide a single-letter description of the achievable ...

Tsachy Weissman Erik Ordentlich Gadiel Seroussi Marcelo Weinberger Sergio Verdú, "Universal Discrete Denoising: Known Channel".  Dec 2004

A discrete denoising algorithm estimates the input sequence to a discrete memoryless channel (DMC) based on the observation of the entire output sequence. For ...

Ioannis Kontoyiannis, "Recurrence and Waiting Times in Stationary Processes, and their Applications in Data Compression".  May 1998

Over the past 25 years, the practical requirement for efficient data compression algorithms has generated a large volume of research covering the whole spectrum from practically ...
