This book provides the first coherent account of a well-known approach to the problem of light scattering by small anisotropic particles. In this extended second edition the authors have encompassed all the new topics arising from their recent studies of cosmic dust grains. Thus many chapters were deeply revised and new chapters were added. The book addresses a wide spectrum of applications.

From the reviews of the second edition:
"The book begins ... with an expanded introduction to the mathematical details of vector spherical harmonics and multipole fields. ... many researchers dealing with applications of plasmon-resonant nanostructures, biological imaging, and biosensing could extract a lot of useful information and recipes from this book. ... Scattering From Model Nonspherical Particles is written by active researchers. ... This fact increases the value and attraction of this monograph." (Nikolai Khlebtsov, Eos, September, 2008)
