the Ewald–Oseen extinction theorem

Recommended Posts

In optics, the Ewald–Oseen extinction theorem, sometimes referred to as just "extinction theorem", is a theorem that underlies the common understanding of scattering (including refraction, reflection, and diffraction).

An important part of optical physics theory is starting with microscopic physics—the behavior of atoms and electrons—and using it to derive the familiar, macroscopic, laws of optics.–Oseen_extinction_theorem
