@article{Fessler2003NonuniformFF, title={Nonuniform fast Fourier transforms using min-max interpolation}, author={Jeffrey A. Fessler and Bradley P. Sutton}, journal={IEEE Trans. Signal Process.}, year={2003}, volume={51}, pages={560-574} }

The fast Fourier transform (FFT) is used widely in signal processing for efficient computation of the FT of finite-length signals over a set of uniformly spaced frequency locations. However, in many applications, one requires nonuniform sampling in the frequency domain, i.e., a nonuniform FT. Several papers have described fast approximations for the nonuniform FT based on interpolating an oversampled FFT. This paper presents an interpolation method for the nonuniform FT that is optimal in the…
