Abstract

The exact solution, Born approximation, and its variational improvement are obtained for the scattering of electromagnetic waves from two randomly separated Rayleigh dielectric cylinders. This special model is used to test a recently developed vector stochastic variational principle. The variational results are shown to account accurately for the geometric polarizability of the cylinders as well as for multiple scattering and interference.
