A procedure for factoring of the N×N matrix representing the discrete Fourier transform is presented which does not produce shuffled data. Exactly one factor is produced for each factor of N, resulting in a fast Fourier transform valid for any N. The factoring algorithm enables the fast Fourier transform to be implemented in general with four nested loops, and with three loops if N is a power of two. No special logical organization, such as binary indexing, is required to unshuffle data. Included are two sample programs, one which writes the equations of the matrix factors employing the four key loops, and one which implements the algorithm in a fast Fourier transform for N a power of two. The algorithm is shown to be most efficient for Na power of two.
