Nasir Ahmed (born 1940 in Bangalore, India) is an Indian-American electrical engineer and computer scientist. He is Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer and Engineering at University of New Mexico (UNM). He is best known for inventing the discrete cosine transform (DCT) in the early 1970s. The DCT is the most widely used data compression transformation, the basis for most digital media standards (image, video and audio) and commonly used in digital signal processing. He also described the discrete sine transform (DST), which is related to the DCT.
