The technique of elastic scattering of electromagnetic radiation has been used as a diagnostic tool in various disciplines of science,engineering,medicine and agriculture.The investigations relating to above problems may be divided in three categories:(i)Scattering by a single particle,(ii)Scattering by a tenuous system of uncorrelated scatterers and (iii)Scattering by a concentrated dispersion of scatterers.In the proposed book,the primary effort is to examine the analytic solutions of the scattering problems of types (i) and (ii) in diverse backgrounds.For the completeness of the book,analytic solutions in scattering situations of type (iii) are also covered in reasonable details.
"Sharma does an excellent job of focusing on analytical solutions of elastic scattering problems, where the emphasis is to find approximate solutions."
