Abstract:

Accuracy criteria for calculation of the logarithmic derivative An of the Riccati-Bessel function of the first kind by the Mie theory are proposed. A combined algorithm for calculation of An is described. It allows one to reduce the capacity of a random-access memory thereby providing the opportunity for calculating the optical characteristics of particles with a diffraction parameter of 106 and larger using a PC.
