Until recently multiple scattering did not receive much attention from a theoretical point of view, due to its difficulty of having an analytical treatment. Ferrel1 was the first to consider the effects of double scattering on the spectrum of light scattered by a fluid, as late as 1968. More recently attention has been given to multiple scattering near the critical point and to its relevance in the depolarized spectrum2, 3, 4.
