- Algorithm BSTW
The Algorithm BSTW is a
data compressionalgorithm, named after its designers, Bentley, Sleator, Tarjan and Wei in 1986. BSTW is a dictionary-based algorithm that uses a move-to-front transformto keep recently-seen dictionary entries at the front of the dictionary. Dictionary references are then encoded using any of a number of encoding methods, usually Elias delta codingor Elias gamma coding.
