Questions on coding my FFT&LLR implementation
I know that there is a fftthread in this forum, but it's still to hard for me. I'm currently coding an implementation of the LLR(Lucaslehmerriesel) test.It's currently using the GMP and I want to implement FFT for it. Can you please explain me the way from the x^2 calculation(I think that's the point where FFT helps) to the FFT. Also,if possible,can you show me an example on a small mersenne number(LL test)? This might help me a lot in understanding.
Thanks, nuggetprime

Search for the thread titled "FFT explanation for non math guys".

Thanks,I'm now understanding DFT in basics.
How does then the IBDWT work(different)? There aren't many resources on the web to this. Thanks, nugget

Question: What's the best way to store the transformed numbers? floating point,or?
Thanks, nuggetprime

Otherwise formulated:is double enough for,say, FFT length 500K?
Thanks, nuggetprime

Yes, double precision should be plenty. It may be just insufficient if you are not careful with how you generate the trig factors for the FFT; references often use a recursion for them which causes increased roundoff error for very long transform lengths.

Thank you for your answer jasonp.
But how can I calculate in binary in C? I probably will have to create arrays of 1bit fields,or? Thanks, nugget

The above was not stated precisely, I think.
I want to know if in C, when i define a ,say, unsigned short int, how can I access a certain bit of it,in reasonable CPU time? Thanks, nuggetprime Last fiddled with by nuggetprime on 20080910 at 17:33
