Multiscale vector quantizationMS42

We present a novel quantization algorithm based on building and adaptively pruning a partition on the data space. The proposed method has connections with decision trees, wavelet representation and can be contrasted to classic quantization schemes such as k-means. The performance of the algorithms are analyzed in a general statistical learning framework where data are assumed to be sample according to un unknown distribution. In particular, the obtained error estimates depend on the geometric properties of the support of the distribution and cover the special case where the latter is a manifold.
