Author Affiliations +
An extension of one of the fastest existing algorithms for the computation of the 2D discrete cosine transform is given. The algorithm can be implemented in-place requiring N2 less memory locations and 2N2 less data transfers for the computation of NXN DCT points compared to existing 2D FCT algorithms. Based on the proposed algorithm, a fast pruning algorithm is derived for computing the N0xN0 lowest frequency components of a length NXN discrete cosine transform, with both N and N0 being powers of 2. The computational complexity of the algorithm is compared with the row-column pruning method and experimental results on execution times are given.
