The author describes a novel sigma tree based design of a TCRVQ. TCVRQs have been

exploited in literature with interesting result and this design is, to the best of my

knowledge,

original. Unfortunately, the paper only reports of a series of experiments and the

results of these experiments are very poor. The only case in which this design

improves upon a TCVRQ is in the case of a 2 dimensional uniform source encoded a
t

2 bit/sample and, even in this case, the improvement is marginal (0.09dB).

No sufficient justification is given in the paper on why this method has some advantage

over more traditional designs and no theoretical analysis is present.
