### Abstract

We present a wavelet image coder based on an explicit model of the conditional statistical relationships between coefficients in different subbands. In particular, we construct a parameterized model for the conditional probability of a coefficient given coefficients at a coarser scale. Sub-band coefficients are encoded one bitplane at a time using a non-adaptive arithmetic encoder. The overall ordering of bitplanes is determined by the ratio of their encoded variance to compressed size. We show rate-distortion comparisons of the coder to first and second-order theoretical entropy bounds and the EZW coder. The coder is inherently embedded, and should prove useful in applications requiring progressive transmission.
