In chapter 3, additive FT algorithms were derived corresponding to the factorization of the transform size N into a product of two factors. Analogous algorithms will now be designed corresponding to transform sizes given as a product of three or more factors. In general, as the number of factors increases, the number of possible algorithms increases.
