### STFT of ISTFT in the Griffin Lim Algorithm

The Griffin-Lim algorithm for phase recovery (based on the magnitude of an STFT) involves a step that is: STFT(Inverse STFT(...)). This seems to be the key iteration in the algorithm. This Quora ...

### How will magnitude and phase spectrum of an imaginary function would look like? Like if $x(t)=j \text{rect(t)}$. Is phase spectrum even or odd?

I am confused between when a phase spectrum is odd and when it is an even function of $\omega$(angular frequency, Fourier transform variable).
