The Truncated Fourier Transform and applications


In this talk, we present a truncated version of the classical Fast Fourier Transform. When applied to polynomial multiplication, this algorithm has the nice property of eliminating the “jumps” in the complexity at powers of two. When applied to the multiplication of multivariate polynomials or truncated multivariate power series, we gain a logarithmic factor with respect to the best previously known algorithms.
