Build Status Coverage Status

This is a Julia interface to FINUFFT, a lightweight and fast nonuniform FFT (nufft) library released by the Flatiron Institute.


Julia 1.0 and up: From the Pkg REPL mode (hit ] in REPL to enter), run


This should download, build and test FINUFFT v1.1.1, as long as you have gcc and curl installed. The FFTW library is downloaded locally by the build script, using Conda.jl

Developed and tested on Linux. Also works on Max OS X, but build script is hardwired to use GCC 9 (g++-9 and gcc-9).


Might now work on Windows as well. Has been tested successfully on two Windows 10 setups with TDM-GCC 9.2.0 and Julia 1.4.1. (Important: make sure that openmp for gcc is installed.).


This module provides functions nufft1d1, nufft1d2, ..., nufft3d3, nufft1d1!, nufft1d2!, ..., nufft3d3!, and finufft_default_opts that call the interface defined in

A reference of the provided functions is available at

  • Function calls mimic the C/C++ interface, with the exception that you don't need to pass the dimensions of any arrays in the argument (they are inferred using size()).
  • The functions named nufftDdN return the output array.
  • The functions named nufftDdN! take the output array as an argument. This needs to be preallocated.
  • The last argument of the nufft routines is the options struct, which is optional. Default values are used if it is omitted.
  • finufft_default_opts() returns an options struct with default values.
  • The advanced interfaces finufft2d1many and finufft2d2many have not been implemented yet.



# nonuniform data
nj = 100
x = pi*(1.0 .- 2.0*rand(nj))
c = rand(nj) + 1im*rand(nj)

# Parameters
ms = 20 # Output size
tol = 1e-10 # Tolerance

# Output as return value
fk = nufft1d1(x, c, 1, tol, ms)

# Preallocate output and pass as argument
out = Array{ComplexF64}(undef, ms)
nufft1d1!(x, c, 1, tol, out)

# Call using modified opts 
opts = finufft_default_opts()
opts.debug = 1
fk2 = nufft1d1(x, c, 1, tol, ms, opts)
