Compaction by optimal permutation (COPERM) is a tool transform-domain energy compaction of broadband signals, whose foundation is a simple but powerful idea: Any signal can be transformed to resemble a more desirable (e.g., from a transform-domain compaction viewpoint) signal from a class of 'target' signals (e.g. DCT basis functions) by means of a suitable permutation of its samples. One application of transform-domain energy compaction is in lossy compression. We pursue one possible thread in detail and demonstrate some interesting broadband image compression results.
