Lossless Compression

Main Idea

When storing information in a data format we often find repetitive or information-less fragments in the data. If the information content is low with respect to the number of characters needed, one might ask if a more efficient storing method would be beneficent. Basically, lossless compression methods try to find repetitions in data and build rules that describe the structure of the repetition.
