FFTW website  
Fastest Fourier Transform in the West, is a C library for computing the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) in one or more dimensions, of arbitrary input size, and of both real and complex data. Developed at MIT, it is by far the fastest implementation of FFT algorithm (upheld by regular benchmarks.)
