## Abstract in another language

The Beevers—Lipson procedure was developed as an economical evaluation of Fourier maps in two- and three-dimensional space. Straightforward generalization of this procedure towards a transformation in n-dimensional space would lead to n nested loops over the n coordinates, respectively, and different computer code is required for each dimension. An algorithm is proposed based on the generalization of the Beevers—Lipson procedure towards transforms in n-dimensional space that contains the dimension as a variable and that results in a single piece of computer code for arbitrary dimensions. The computational complexity is found to scale as Nłog(N), where \it N is the number of pixels in the map, and it is independent of the dimension of the transform. This procedure will find applications in the evaluation of Fourier maps of quasicrystals and other aperiodic crystals, and in the maximum-entropy method for aperiodic crystals.
