Fast fourier-transforms - A tutorial review and a state-of the art

The publication of the Cooley-Tukey fast Fourier transform (FIT) algorithm in 1965 has opened a new area in digital signal processing by reducing the order of complexity of some crucial computational tasks like Fourier transform and convolution from $N^2$ to $N\log_2 N$, where $N$ is the problem size. The development of the major algorithms (Cooley-Tukey and split-radix FFT, prime factor algorithm and Winograd fast Fourier transform) is reviewed. Then, an attempt is made to indicate the state of the art on the subject, showing the standing of research, open problems and implementations.
