Abstract : This research employs the modified Huffman coding after dropping the selected source symbols, with respect to their usage frequencies. The expected results are a decrease in average length as well as in variance. The ultimate purpose is to reduce the required bandwidth and the buffer size in a communications system. Keywords include: Bandwidth, Buffer, Huffman coding, Modification, Average code length, and Variance.
