Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 318)


As discussed in the Preface, the contents of this book is restricted to independent light scattering without change of wavelength. Unless stated otherwise, we shall assume from hereon that the scattering agents are particles (including molecules) or collections of particles. Our restrictions imply that at any moment the particles are far from each other compared to wavelength and each particle has sufficient room to establish its own distant scattered field.
