NUFFT vs FFT?
20 views (last 30 days)
I would like to ask regarding the advantages and disadvantages of the regular Fast Fourier Transform (fft) and the non uniform version (nufft). I noticed that for nufft, we need to specify the time samples. However, what is the real advantage and disadvantage of fft and nufft? I read that nufft provides faster computation than fft. But then, why do we still use fft? Is it because choosing the time sample difficult? Looking forward hearing from you guys!

The advantage of nufft is that it allows you to compute the FFT of non-uniformly sampled signals. You cannot do this with fft.
If your signals are uniformly sampled, then there is no need to use nufft.
