Absorption and Scattering of Light by Small Particles. 2nd Edition

This self–contained, interdisciplinary textbook examines and illustrates how small particles absorb and scatter light, treating both in equal measure. This because any discussion of the optical behavior of small particles is inseparable from a full understanding of that of the parent material–bulk matter –– to divorce one concept from the other is to render any study on scattering theory seriously incomplete.
This second edition has been completely corrected, revised, and updated.
