M. Kerker uses, in fact, Riccati-Hankel functions of the second kind. However, the asymptotic behavior of those is such that they represent ingoing spherical waves. Equations (3.3.56) and (3.3.57) for the scattering amplitudes in Kerker's book (Ref. 8) consequently contain a factor (-)^{n+1} that conflicts with the results of other authors where (-)^{n+1} is absent.

M. E. Rose, Elementary Theory of Angular Momentum (Wiley, New York, 1957), p. 60, Eq. (4.28a).

The prime denoting differentiation is used with some inconsistency. In connection with the Riccati-Bessel function, the prime means differentiation with respect to the argument throughout: ψ′(*N*α) = d/d(*N*α)ψ(Nα) or ζ(α) = d/dαζ(α). In connection with the radial functions ƒ_{ni} and g_{ni}, we always mean differentiation with respect to *R* at the point *R* = *R*_{o}, e.g., ƒ′_{ni} = d/d*R*ƒ(*kR*)| *R* = *R*_{o}.
