Abstract

A generalized vector–matrix method is employed to determine the intensity of diffusely scattered light from a hyperboloid of one sheet. Solutions for both the elliptic and circular cross-section cases are obtained in integral form. For certain limiting conditions the latter results are shown to reduce to a form obtained earlier for a cylinder of circular cross section.
