SFTPACK
"Slow" Fourier Transforms
SFTPACK
is a C++ library which
carries out some "slow" Fourier transforms, that is, Fourier
transforms without the techniques that allow for very fast
computation.
The intention is to make the underlying calculation clear,
and to provide a simple check and comparison of timing and usage
for the fast calculations.
The fast Fourier transform is a highly efficient procedure. However,
the coding of the algorithm, and the conventions for indexing, ordering,
and normalization, can make it quite difficult to understand what is
being done, or even to see how to use the software correctly. This
means that a coding error or mistaken use can be undetected.
