The function may be called by the names: c06psc, nag_sum_fft_complex_1d_multi_col or nag_sum_fft_complex_1d_multi.
Given sequences of complex data values , for and , c06psc simultaneously calculates the (forward or backward) discrete Fourier transforms of all the sequences defined by
(Note the scale factor in this definition.) The minus sign is taken in the argument of the exponential within the summation when the forward transform is required, and the plus sign is taken when the backward transform is required.
A call of c06psc with followed by a call with will restore the original data.
The function uses a variant of the fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithm (see Brigham (1974)) known as the Stockham self-sorting algorithm, which is described in Temperton (1983). Special code is provided for the factors , and .

Some indication of accuracy can be obtained by performing a subsequent inverse transform and comparing the results with the original sequence (in exact arithmetic they would be identical).
8Parallelism and Performance
c06psc is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
c06psc makes calls to BLAS and/or LAPACK routines, which may be threaded within the vendor library used by this implementation. Consult the documentation for the vendor library for further information.
Please consult the X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this function. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.
The time taken by c06psc is approximately proportional to , but also depends on the factors of . c06psc is fastest if the only prime factors of are , and , and is particularly slow if is a large prime, or has large prime factors.
This function internally allocates a workspace of Complex values.
This example reads in sequences of complex data values and prints their discrete Fourier transforms (as computed by c06psc with ). Inverse transforms are then calculated using c06psc with and printed out, showing that the original sequences are restored.
