Abstract : The theory for the scattering of magnetic spheres is developed by means of scaling functions. This theory leads in a natural way to the development of scattering algorithms which use exponential scaling to overcome computational overflow problems. The design and testing of the algorithm is described. Fortran codes which implement the algorithmic design are presented and examples of code use are given. Listings of the code are included. (AN)
