The Spectre of Math

poking around I just found advancecomp which uses the 7zip compression deflate algorithm which seems to get often better results than running optipng with the full 1000 trials. Though I guess running first optipng and then advpng is probably best. optipng optimizes for the correct filter and advpng then might (not always) get better compression. It would be good if optipng also tried the 7-zip algorithm. The plot2-nq8.png didn’t decrease anymore, but plot2.png went down by 2k and is now 51k.
