FFTW3 Interface to Intel® Math Kernel Library

This section describes a collection of FFTW3 wrappers to
Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library
. The wrappers translate calls of FFTW3 functions to the calls of the
Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library
Fourier transform (FFT) or Trigonometric Transform (TT) functions. The purpose of FFTW3 wrappers is to enable developers whose programs currently use the FFTW3 library to gain performance with the
Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library
Fourier transforms without changing the program source code.
The FFTW3 wrappers provide a limited functionality compared to the original FFTW 3.x library, because of differences between FFTW and
Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library
FFT and TT functionality. This section describes limitations of the FFTW3 wrappers and hints for their usage. Nevertheless, many typical FFT tasks can be performed using the FFTW3 wrappers to
Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library
.
The FFTW3 wrappers are integrated in
Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library
. The only change required to use
Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library
through the FFTW3 wrappers is to link your application using FFTW3 against
Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library
.
A reference implementation of the FFTW3 wrappers is also provided in open source. You can find it in the
interfaces
directory of the
Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library
distribution. You can use the reference implementation to create your own wrapper library (seeBuilding Your Own Wrapper Library)
