According to Wikipedia, "LZMA is effectively deflate (zlib, gzip, zip) with a larger dictionary size, 32MB instead of 32kB".

It also say: "the amount of RAM required during decompression is principally determined by the size of the sliding window used during compression. Small code size and relatively low memory overhead, particularly with smaller dictionary lengths, make the LZMA decompression algorithm well-suited to embedded applications."

I'm not sure if that's a good enough answer. :)
