List update algorithms have been widely used as subroutines in compression schemas, most notably as part of Burrows-Wheeler compression. The Burrows-Wheeler transform (BWT), which is the basis of many state-of-the-art general purpose compressors applies a compression algorithm to a permuted version of the original text. List update algorithms are a common choice for this second stage of BWT-based compression. In this paper we perform an experimental comparison of various list update algorithmsdoi:10.1007/978-3-642-02011-7_14 fatcat:4l67nkiwj5brdc42uw3jbkil4u
