A study of image compression techniques, with specific focus on weighted finite automata
Thesis (MSc (Mathematical Sciences)--University of Stellenbosch, 2005.
Image compression using weighted finite automata (WFA) is studied and implemented in Matlab. Other more prominent image compression techniques, namely JPEG, vector quantization, EZW wavelet image compression and fractal image compression are also presented. The performance of WFA image compression is then compared to those of some of the abovementioned techniques.
