Mishchenko, M.I., 2008: Multiple scattering by particles embedded in an absorbing medium. 1. Foldy-Lax equations, order-of-scattering expansion, and coherent field. Opt. Express, 16, 2288-2301, doi:10.1364/OE.16.002288.

This paper presents a systematic analysis of the problem of multiple scattering by a finite group of arbitrarily sized, shaped, and oriented particles embedded in an absorbing, homogeneous, isotropic, and unbounded medium. The volume integral equation is used to derive generalized Foldy-Lax equations and their order-of-scattering form. The far-field version of the Foldy-Lax equations is used to derive the transport equation for the so-called coherent field generated by a large group of sparsely, randomly, and uniformly distributed particles. The differences between the generalized equations and their counterparts describing multiple scattering by particles embedded in a non-absorbing medium are highlighted and discussed.
