I'd suggest you check out the jit.fft-threshold.pat example and other
jit.fft examples and let us know if you have additional questions. Keep
in mind that in an fft, you have both positive and negative frequencies
(about the center vertically and horizontally in the 2D case), and that
in a 2D fft the harmonics have frequencies about each axis as
determined by the cell position. real and imaginary coordinates are in
the matrix planes 0 and 1 respectively. More info on 2D ffts can be
found online.
