Burrows-Wheeler text compression with fountain codes

This paper presents an algorithm in a purely lossless text compression setting based on fountain codes and the Burrows-Wheeler transform (BWT). The scheme consists of five stages, each of which is briefly described in the paper. The algorithm offers encouraging compression rate performance for large files. A summary of the results of the proposed scheme and other compression schemes is provided.
