Examples/Fft2dHighpass
v22 v23 48 48 The vector version uses the same recursive radix2 decimation in time (DIT) algorithm as the Repa version, but is not rank generalised. It applies a recursive 1d FFT to each row and then transposes the matrix, twice each. Recursive FFT algorithms tend to be slower than inplace ones because intermediate data is written into new vectors at each recursion. A 512 point FFT is built from two 256 point FFTs, which are built from 4 128 point FFTs and so on. The result of each FFT is a new vector which needs to be allocated, filled, then unboxed again during the next recursion. The base case is a 2 point vector, so there are 256 of them to allocate then unbox at the lowest step. 49 49 50 Jones's version also uses a 1d radix2 DIT FFT kernel, but it first reorders the values then performs a inplace transform using three nested loops. Using an inplace algorithm gives better locality, and avoids the need to allocate and unbox all the intermediate vectors.50 Jones's version also uses a 1d radix2 DIT FFT kernel, but it first reorders the values then performs an inplace transform using three nested loops.
