Paper Abstract

The radix 5 based system employs five separate characters that have no semantic meaning except not representing the other characters. Traditional literature has a random string of binary sequential characters as being "less patterned" than non-random sequential strings. A non-random string of characters will be able to compress, were as a random string of characters will not be able to compress. This study has found that a radix 5 based character length allows for equal compression of random and non-random sequential strings. This has important aspects to information tranmission and storage.
