Fast Fourier Transform. A fast algorithm for performing a discrete Fourier
transform (an orthogonal transform).
A set of band-pass filters covering the entire audio frequency range.
A variable which can take one of only two values.
The term forbidden when used in the clauses defining the coded bitstream
indicates that the value shall never be used. This is usually to avoid
emulation of start codes.
A new coding standard is forward compatible with an existing coding standard
if new decoders (designed to operate with the new coding standard) continue
to be able to decode bitstreams of the existing coding standard.
