     II RECOMMENDATION
     A Publish Unaltered
     AQ Publish with Minor, Required Changes (as noted in Section III)
     X R Reject (Paper is seriously flawed and should not be resubmitted.)


     III Comments:
     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 at
     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.
