A quadratic-polynomial Fermat residue number system (QFNS) can be used to compute the complex multiplications needed to perform a DFT. The advantage of such a QFNS is that complex multiplication can be accomplished with only two integer multiplications. In this paper, it is shown that a new set of numbers of the form Tn = 22n + 1 can be used in place of the set of Fermat numbers. This new quadratic residue number system can be used also to compute a complex multiplication with only two integer multiplications.
