Title: Method for improving data encoding and decoding efficiency

Abstract: A method improves the efficiency of a compression technique by introducinga new parameter to be associated with a given probability range forevents. When the new parameter is to be utilized, that parameter isassociated with a table that matches codes to sequences of events. Thecoder receives the bit stream, detects a sequence of events and then readsthe corresponding code from the table when the coder recognizes that theprobability range with respect to the code corresponds to this newparameter. At the decoder the received bit stream is matched to tableentries to determine the corresponding event sequence.
