Constructing AIFV Codes
Project Description

AIFV (Almost Instantaneous Fixed to Variable Codes) are a new type of lossless code that can sometimes beat "Optimal" Huffman coding. Because the ideas behind them are so new, there are many variants that have not yet been examined. The purpose of the UROP is to push new research into AIFV codes
