Hi Rune,

maybe the sliding DFT algorithm
would work for you.

This can be useful if you want a large number of points in the narrow
frequency band, more finely sampled than the usual DFT outputs (although
the uncertainty principle still applies: you only get a sinc
interpolation, not really more resolution).  If you have N sampling
points in time, and you want M frequency amplitudes, it is O((M + N) log
(M + N)). [*]

On the other hand, if you only want a set of K << N bins that are a
subset of the ordinary DFT coefficients, it is more efficient just to
compute the full N-point FFT than to use the above-cited method.  In
this case, what you really want is something called a "pruned FFT".
Unfortunately, you can show that, in general, the efficiency of a pruned
FFT is O(N log K), i.e. the savings are only in the log, so it is
usually not worth the trouble.  In comparison, Goertzel would be O(N K),
of course, which can be faster than the full FFT for small K.

There are also a couple of *approximate* DFT methods for computing a
subset of the DFT outputs inexactly; see:

*  H. Guo and C. S. Burrus, "Fast approximate Fourier transform via
wavelets transform," Proc. SPIE Intl. Soc. Opt. Eng. 2825, 250&#2013266070;259 (1996).

* O. V. Shentov, S. K. Mitra, U. Heute, and A. N. Hossen, "Subband DFT.
I. Definition, interpretations and extensions," Signal Processing 41
(3), 261&#2013266070;277 (1995).

[*] Nota bene: Bailey's terminology is non-standard. This is generally
called the chirp z-transform algorithm, after Rabiner, Schafer and Rader
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluestein%27s_FFT_algorithm)  If you do a
literature search, you'll find that a "fractional Fourier transform" or
"fractional DFT" more commonly refer to something completely different,
essentially the Fourier linear operator to a non-integer power.

```Hi all.

Does anyone know how to compute the DFT coefficients efficiently
in a narrow frequency band (few but more than one bins)? I guess
such an algorithm would be a cousin of the Goertzel algorithm?
