Thus in previously considered case of n-1-n scatterings we have to multiply scattering probability p[(1 - p).sup.2n] on probability to survive in absorption between 2n + 1 scattering events: [a.sup.2n+2].
To each diagram with the total path length 2N we can assign a weight W(2N, 3) the number of different diagrams with the same length 2N and 3 backward scatterings. This weight can be estimated from the geometry of this path.
Single, 3-fold and 5-fold backward scatterings are compared on Figure 7.
People can scattering ashes on private property in all 50 states.
When families and friends live nearby, scattering of ashes is generally a private memorial attended by loved ones of the deceased.
“Our company brings closure to mourning families by conducting a dignified ash scattering memorial, surrounded by the spiritual red rocks mountains of Sedona, AZ,” John says.
First, a significant number of studies are inclined to describe "dependent" and "multiple" scattering of light as distinct phenomena.

In this paper, an iterative method is applied to solve the 3-D composite scattering problem.
Quasi-stationary algorithm [20,21] is used to obtain the time-evolving EM scattering field from the composite model.
Numerous methods have been approached in the scattering of the composite model.
The KA has been widely applied to calculate the scattering of the rough surface, since the induced current distribution can be easy obtained by the physical optics approximation with the very low computational cost.
