Parameters
----------
invec : complex64 or float32
Input pycbc.types.Array (or subclass); its FFT will be computed
outvec : complex64
Output pycbc.types.Array (or subclass); it will hold the FFT of invec
nbatch : int (default 1)
When not one, specifies that invec and outvec should each be interpreted
as nbatch distinct vectors. The total length of invec and outvec should
then be that appropriate to a single vector, multiplied by nbatch
size : int (default None)
When nbatch is not 1, this parameter gives the logical size of each
transform. If nbatch is 1 (the default) this can be None, and the
logical size is the length of invec.
The addresses in memory of both vectors should be divisible by
pycbc.PYCBC_ALIGNMENT.
