In this paper we use a mathematical approach to automatically generate high performance short vector code for the discrete Fourier transform (DFT). We represent the well-known Cooley-Tukey fast Fourier transform in a mathematical notation and formally derive a "short vector variant". Using this recursion we generate for a given DFT a large number of different algorithms, represented as formulas, and translate them into short vector code. Then we present a vector code specific dynamic programming method that searches in the space of different implementations for the fastest on the given architecture. We implemented this approach as part of the SPIRAL library generator On Pentium III and 4, our automatically generated SSE and SSE2 vector code compares favorably with the hand-tuned Intel vendor library.
