documents are mostly dealing on the technical aspects related to MPEG-1
standard such that psychoacoustics, perceptual coding, entropy
coding and designs of audio coders.

paper provides a precise study on the auditory masking effect
and of its use in perceptual coding. In the third part, it gives an
overview of the MPEG-1 standard.
& Bosi, M. Overview of MPEG Audio:
Current and Future
Standards for Low-Bit-Rate Audio Coding, Journal of the Audio
Engineering Society, 1997,
Vol. Vol. 45(No. 1/2)
paper provides a comparative overview of the different audio coding
standards (MPEG-1, AC-2,...) in 1997 and present the "future" MPEG-4
standard. Brandenburg is one of the main designers of OCF and ASPEC
algorithms which inspired MP3 standard.
Painter, T. & Spanias, A. Perceptual Coding of
Proceedings of IEEE, 2000,
paper provides a very extensive study of the perceptual coding with an
overview of most of the audio coders (MUSICAM,
OCF,...) and standards
(MPEG-1,...) using it. At the end of the paper, there is a discussion
about quality measures for perceptual audio coding.

paper was made on the same purpose than the previous one but three
years earlier. It is less
dense and don't deal with quality measures but still provides a lot of
information about coding and
Pan, D. A

paper is a quite detailed presentation of the MPEG-1 standard.

to analog and digital signal processing mathematical aspects. Chapter 7
of this course book deals with entropy coding (e.g. Huffman coding) and
quantization. Chapter 8 deals with signal compression.

overview of modern digital audio. Chapter ten deals with perceptual
coding aspects, the associate standards (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, AC,...) and
performance evaluation of perceptual coders.
