# numpy.fft.ihfft#

fft.ihfft(a, n=None, axis=-1, norm=None)[source]#

Compute the inverse FFT of a signal that has Hermitian symmetry.

Parameters:
aarray_like

Input array.

nint, optional

Length of the inverse FFT, the number of points along transformation axis in the input to use. If n is smaller than the length of the input, the input is cropped. If it is larger, the input is padded with zeros. If n is not given, the length of the input along the axis specified by axis is used.

axisint, optional

Axis over which to compute the inverse FFT. If not given, the last axis is used.

norm{“backward”, “ortho”, “forward”}, optional

New in version 1.10.0.

Normalization mode (see `numpy.fft`). Default is “backward”. Indicates which direction of the forward/backward pair of transforms is scaled and with what normalization factor.

New in version 1.20.0: The “backward”, “forward” values were added.

Returns:
outcomplex ndarray

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//2 + 1`.

Notes

`hfft`/`ihfft` are a pair analogous to `rfft`/`irfft`, but for the opposite case: here the signal has Hermitian symmetry in the time domain and is real in the frequency domain. So here it’s `hfft` for which you must supply the length of the result if it is to be odd:

• even: `ihfft(hfft(a, 2*len(a) - 2)) == a`, within roundoff error,

• odd: `ihfft(hfft(a, 2*len(a) - 1)) == a`, within roundoff error.

Examples

```>>> spectrum = np.array([ 15, -4, 0, -1, 0, -4])
>>> np.fft.ifft(spectrum)
array([1.+0.j,  2.+0.j,  3.+0.j,  4.+0.j,  3.+0.j,  2.+0.j]) # may vary
>>> np.fft.ihfft(spectrum)
array([ 1.-0.j,  2.-0.j,  3.-0.j,  4.-0.j]) # may vary
