Due to the rapidly increasing need for methods of data compression, quantization has become a flourishing field in signal & image processing & information theory. The same techniques are also used in statistics (cluster analysis), pattern recognition, & operations research (optimal location of service centers). The book gives the first mathematically rigorous account of the fundamental theory underlying these applications. The emphasis is on the asymptotics of quantization errors for absolutely continuous & special classes of singular probabilities (surface measures, self-similar measures) presenting some new results for the first time. Written for researchers & graduate students in probability theory the monograph is of potential interest to all people working in the disciplines mentioned above.
