Simple Worst-Case Optimal Adaptive Prefix-Free Coding

LIPIcs-ESA-2022-57.pdf (0.5 MB)


We give a new and simple worst-case optimal algorithm for adaptive prefix-free coding that matches Gagie and Nekrich’s (2009) bounds except for lower-order terms, and uses no data structures more complicated than a lookup table.
