The paper presents the modification of Adaptive Huffman Coding method – lossless data compression technique used in data transmission. The modification was related to the process of adding a new character to the coding tree, namely, the author proposes to introduce two special nodes instead of single NYT (not yet transmitted) node as in the classic method. One of the nodes is responsible for indicating the place in the tree a new node is attached to. The other node is used for sending the signal indicating the appearance of a character which is not presented in the tree. The modified method was compared with existing methods of coding in terms of overall data compression ratio and performance. The proposed method may be used for large alphabets i.e. for encoding the whole words instead of separate characters, when new elements are added to the tree comparatively frequently.
