OpenFFT

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

OpenFFT is an open source parallel package for computing multi-dimensional Fast Fourier Transforms (3-D and 4-D FFTs) of both real and complex numbers of arbitrary input size. It originates from OpenMX (Open source package for Material eXplorer). OpenFFT adopts a communication-optimal domain decomposition method that is adaptive and capable of localizing data when transposing from one dimension to another for reducing the total volume of communication. It is written in C and MPI, with support for Fortran through the Fortran interface, and employs FFTW3 for computing 1-D FFTs.
