Abstract : The statistical mechanical theory of nonspherical molecules is applied to the problem of the scattering of light from fluids composed of optically nonspherical molecules. Expressions for the scattered light intensity in the elastic and inelastic scattering cases are expressed in terms of angular moments of the generalized pair distribution function of the fluid. The special case of axial symmetry is considered, and comparison with previous theoretical and experimental work is briefly made. (Author)
