# jax.numpy.fft.irfft¶

`jax.numpy.fft.``irfft`(a, n=None, axis=- 1, norm=None)[source]

Compute the inverse of the n-point DFT for real input.

LAX-backend implementation of `irfft()`.

Original docstring below.

This function computes the inverse of the one-dimensional n-point discrete Fourier Transform of real input computed by rfft. In other words, `irfft(rfft(a), len(a)) == a` to within numerical accuracy. (See Notes below for why `len(a)` is necessary here.)

The input is expected to be in the form returned by rfft, i.e. the real zero-frequency term followed by the complex positive frequency terms in order of increasing frequency. Since the discrete Fourier Transform of real input is Hermitian-symmetric, the negative frequency terms are taken to be the complex conjugates of the corresponding positive frequency terms.

Parameters
• a (array_like) – The input array.

• n (int, optional) – Length of the transformed axis of the output. For n output points, `n//2+1` input points are necessary. If the input is longer than this, it is cropped. If it is shorter than this, it is padded with zeros. If n is not given, it is taken to be `2*(m-1)` where `m` is the length of the input along the axis specified by axis.

• axis (int, optional) – Axis over which to compute the inverse FFT. If not given, the last axis is used.

• norm ({None, "ortho"}, optional) –

Returns

out – The truncated or zero-padded input, transformed along the axis indicated by axis, or the last one if axis is not specified. The length of the transformed axis is n, or, if n is not given, `2*(m-1)` where `m` is the length of the transformed axis of the input. To get an odd number of output points, n must be specified.
