Sequences of integers which represent the output of a time sampled and quantized information source are considered. If the sequences are known to have first differences less than a given positive integer s or if they are known to be monotonic (either increasing or decreasing) and have first differences satisfying the above property, optimal encoding schemes are presented, in terms of s , the number of samples m , and the number of quantization levels q . The encoding schemes are presented as simple algorithms which may be implemented in a special purpose computer on board scientific spacecraft.
