This is a detailed description of the FLAC format. There is also a companion document that describes <A HREF="ogg_mapping.html">FLAC-to-Ogg mapping</A>.
</P>
<P>
First, as the original developer I have to say that I am not a compression expert and I feel obligated to give credit where it is due. FLAC owes a lot to the many people who have advanced the audio compression field so freely. For instance:

FLAC expands on the fixed predictors used in shorten.

FLAC trivially extends and improves the fixed predictors, LPC coefficient quantization, and Rice coding used in Shorten.
