Discrete dipole approximation for the study of radiation dynamics in a magnetodielectric environment.
TLDR
A general computational approach based on the discrete dipole approximation for the study of radiation dynamics near or inside an object with arbitrary linear dielectric permittivity, and magnetic permeability tensors, providing an approach capable of handling both the electric and magnetic response of advanced metamaterials.
Scattering of generalized Bessel beams simulated with the discrete dipole approximation
We consider the simulation of scattering of the high-order vector Bessel beams in the discrete dipole approximation framework (DDA). For this purpose, a new general classification of all existing

TLDR
The convergence of DDA with refining discretization is discussed and it is shown how an extrapolation technique can be used to increase DDA accuracy and provide a reliable error estimate.
Systematic comparison of the discrete dipole approximation and the finite difference time domain method

The theory of the discrete-dipole approximation for light scattering is extended to allow for the calculation of radiation forces on each dipole in the DDA model, allowing for an efficient, O(N logN) evaluation of the forces.
