Doicu, A., and M.I. Mishchenko, 2019: An overview of methods for deriving the radiative transfer theory from the Maxwell equations. II: Approach based on the Dyson and Bethe-Salpeter equations. J. Quant Sectrosc. Radiat. Transfer, 223, 25-36, doi:10.1016/j.jqsrt.2018.10.032.

In this paper, the vector radiative transfer equation is derived by means of the vector integral Foldy equations describing the electromagnetic scattering by a group of particles. By assuming that in a discrete random medium the positions of the particles are statistically independent and by applying the Twersky approximation to the order-of-scattering expansion of the total field, we derive the Dyson equation for the coherent field and the ladder approximated Bethe-Salpeter equation for the dyadic correlation function. Then, under the far-field assumption for sparsely distributed particles, the Dyson equation is reduced to the Foldy integral equation for the coherent field, while the iterated solution of the Bethe-Salpeter equation ultimately yields the vector radiative transfer equation.
