The computational procedure introduced by Chen, Smith, and Fralick is in widespread use for computing the discrete cosine transform. It is popular because of its simplicity-it is a cascade of smaller (2x 2) orthogonal transforms. We show ways to further exploit the simplicities of such procedures and introduce a new family of transform (the generalized Chen transform or GCT). One parameterization of the GCT is essentially optimal for image compression but has a lower computational cost than other transforms.
