Abstract : The problem of scattering of electromagnetic waves by a small number of closely spaced dielectric spheres is considered as a boundary value problem. The solution to this problem is obtained in a series form using partial spherical vector waves. An approximate solution is also obtained for spheres separated sufficiently far for waves scattered by one sphere and incident on another to be considered plane waves with an amplitude given by the solution to the single scattering problem. The use of both solutions is discussed. (Author)
