Abstract: 

We use the volume integral equation formulation of frequency-domain electromagnetic scattering to settle the issue of additivity of the extinction, scattering, and absorption cross sections of a fixed tenuous group of particles. We show that all the integral optical cross sections of the group can be obtained by summing up the corresponding individual-particle cross sections, provided that the singlescattering approximation applies.
