DDSCAT is a FORTRAN program to calculate scattering and absorption of electromagnetic radiation by arbitrary targets using the "Discrete Dipole Approximation" (DDA). In this approximation the target is replaced by an array of point dipoles; the electromagnetic scattering problem for the array of point dipoles is then solved essentially exactly.
