Abstract : The scattering of electromagnetic waves by a spherically symmetric continuous dielectric is examined. Two distinct methods for calculating the scattering amplitude are derived. It is shown that the scalar approximation is, in general, extremely poor. The radar cross section, is discussed in some detail. (Author)
