Scattering theory of waves and particles by Roger G. Newton, , Springer-Verlag edition, in English - 2nd : A modern formulation of the Mie solution to the scattering problem on a sphere can be found in many books, e.g., J. A. Stratton's Electromagnetic Theory. In this formulation, the incident plane wave, as well as the scattering field, is expanded into radiating spherical vector spherical internal field is expanded into regular vector spherical harmonics.

Scattering of Identical Particles. As a preliminary exercise, consider the classical picture of scattering between two positively charged particles, for example \(\alpha\)- particles, viewed in the center of mass frame. If an outgoing \(\alpha\) is detected at an angle \(\theta\) to the path of ingoing \(\alpha\) #1, it could be #1 deflected through \(\theta\), or #2 deflected through \(\pi. We assume all the ingoing particles are represented by wavepackets of the same shape and size, so we should solve Schrödinger’s time-dependent equation for such a wave packet and find the probability amplitudes for outgoing waves in different directions at some later time after scattering has taken place.

Scattering of electromagnetic waves by particles can be treated by two theoretical frameworks: Rayleigh scattering that is applicable to small, dielectric, non-absorbing spherical particles, and Mie scattering that provides a general solution to scattering independent of particle size. Mie scattering theory provide a generalized approach, has. This book's comprehensive, lucid coverage of the field makes it a valuable source for all those interested in light-scattering theory. It is absolutely essential for researchers needing to employ light-scattering measurements, and its republication will be welcomed especially by those who have found this necessary source difficult to obtain.4/5(3).

out of 5 stars 2. Paperback. $Reviews: A starting point is that quantum mechanics describes the evolution of a wave function and therefore the scattering of waves, much as a wave in a pond would scatter from some fixed object like a rock.

But an experimentalist does not record the arrival of waves, but rather the arrival of particles in a detector. This concise volume represents an enlarged and improved edition of the author's original text on the theory of scattering electromagnetic waves, of classical particles, and of quantum-mechanic particles, including multiparticle collisions.

The opening chapters survey the physical concept of electromagnetic waves and optics. The subsequent chapters deal with the theory of scattering by spheres and infinitely long cylinders.

These topics are followed by discussions on the application of light scattering to the determination of the size distribution of colloidal particles. The transport theory of wave propagation in random particles is discussed along with approximate solutions for a tenuous medium, aspects of diffusion approximation, the two flux and the four flux theory, a plane-parallel problem, problems of isotropic scattering, and an approximation for large particles.

The second is the theory of Mie scattering (after Gustav Mie) that encompasses the general spherical scattering solution (absorbing or non-absorbing) without a particular bound on particle size. Accordingly, Mie scattering theory has no size limitations and converges to the limit of geometric optics for large particles.
