Vector quantization has been used in coding applications for several years. Recently, quantization of linear predictive coding (LPC) vectors has been used for speech coding and recognition. In these latter applications, the only method that has been used for deriving the vector quantizer code book from a set of training vectors is the one described by Linde, Buzo, and Gray. In this paper, we compare this algorithm to several alternative algorithms and also study the properties of the resulting code books. Our conclusion is that the various algorithms that we tried gave essentially identical code books.
