A modified Mie model corresponding to spherical scatterers with the radially varying refractive index is proposed. For this model, the piecewise continuous hyperbolic approximation is developed and its accuracy is estimated. It is shown that the extinction and backscattering efficiency factors only slightly depend on the monotonically decreasing profile of the refractive index chosen within the intermediate layer and on its degree of smoothness.
