I want to implement LZMA (Lempel–Ziv–Markov chain algorithm) alogrithm. for both compression and decompression.But I couldn't find any documentation for that.
Can any one tell me the working of LZMA? or is there any documentation for the same which can describe working of it in detail?

Have you checked out the LZMA SDK[^] page?

The Salomon's "Data Compression: The Complete Reference" book should have a description. At least according to the author himself[^].

I have checked LZMA SDK but it has no documentation.
and though it is open source, it is so complicated and confusing.
For only only algorithm can also do.

It's advanced mathematics, of course it's complicated! If you want to understand the algorithm, better check the math library at your nearest university. For internet research, you could start at wikipedia and follow the references there:
