Fast Fourier transforms
- Snippet from Wikipedia: Fast Fourier transform
A fast Fourier transform (FFT) is an algorithm to compute the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) and its inverse. A Fourier transform converts time (or space) to frequency and vice versa; an FFT rapidly computes such transformations by factorizing the DFT matrix into a product of sparse (mostly zero) factors. As a result, fast Fourier transforms are widely used for many applications in engineering, science, and mathematics.
FFT implementations
There are several packages dealing with the fast fourier transform (FFT) problem. We will discuss the fastest one, which uses many threads and the multicore computer architecture. It is based on the PrallelColt as implemented by Piotr Wendykier.
We will use DComplexFactory2D factory to create a random DenseDComplexMatrix2D matrix and perform FFT.

Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT)
This example is based on the real DenseDoubleMatrix2D matrix.
You can also use 3D matrix methods, see DenseDoubleMatrix3D
Discrete Fourier transform (DFT) Transform
This is 1D DFT transform of a complex matrix 1000×1000 using several processing cores:
