Abstract: We introduce fast Fourier transform algorithms (FFTs) designed for fused multiply-add architectures. We show how to compute a complex discrete Fourier transform (DFT) of length $ n = {2^m}$ with $ \frac{8}{3}nm - \frac{{16}}{9}n + 2 - \frac{2}{9}{( - 1)^m}$ real multiply-adds. For real input, this algorithm uses $ \frac{4}{3}nm - \frac{{17}}{9}n + 3 - \frac{1}{9}{( - 1)^m}$ real multiply-adds. We also describe efficient multidimensional FFTs. These algorithms can be used to compute the DFT of an $ n \times n$ array of complex data using $ \frac{{14}}{3}{n^2}m - \frac{4}{3}{n^2} - \frac{4}{9}n{( - 1)^m} + \frac{{16}}{9}$ real multiply-adds. For each problem studied, the number of multiply-adds that our algorithms use is a record upper bound for the number required.
