R circ S. I have only seen this circle operator with function compositions, so is this "Set Composition"? If so, then how does it work? The question is "Suppose R and S are relations on a set A. If R and S are reflexive relations, then R circ S is reflexive" select true or false.

Step 1
When R is a relation on sets G and H (that is, a subset of G × H), and S is a relation on sets H and J, then S R is a relation on G and J in which g is related to j if and only if there is some h H with gRh and hSj.
Step 2
For example, suppose ( g , h ) R means that woman g is the mother of person h, and ( h , j ) S means that person h likes to eat food j. Then S R is the relation which holds for woman g and food j if and only if g is the mother of someone who likes to eat food j.
When R and S are functions, this definition coincides with the composition of the two functions.

Exercise involving DFT
The fourier matrix is a transformation matrix where each component is defined as F a b = ω a b where ω = e 2 π i / n . The indices of the matrix range from 0 to n 1 (i.e. a , b { 0 , . . . , n 1 })
As such we can write the Fourier transform of a complex vector v as v ^ = F v, which means that
v ^ f = a { 0 , . . . , n 1 } ω a f v a
Assume that n is a power of 2. I need to prove that for all odd c { 0 , . . . , n 1 }, every d { 0 , . . . , n 1 } and every complex vectors v, if w b = v c b + d , then for all f { 0 , . . . , n 1 } it is the case that:
w ^ c f = ω f d a v ^ f
I was able to prove it for n = 2 and n = 4, so I tried an inductive approach. This doesn't seem to be the best way to go and I am stuck at the inductive step and I don't think I can go any further which indicates that this isn't the right approach.
Note that I am not looking for a full solution, just looking for a hint.
