Isn't this a regular DFT, and a powerof2DFT is an FFT and the the chirpztransformation can be used to calculate some, let's call it, NtoM DFT, with some N+M+1 < 2^kFFT? >> I think the chirpz transform has no realworld application in >> resampling.

The model is based on auditory physiology and psychophysics; it uses constantbandwidth analysis below 500 Hz and constantQ analysis above 500 Hz.....
