Codes for electromagnetic scattering by cylinders - this article list codes for electromagnetic scattering by a cylinder. Some of the source codes may be available on [1].

Majority of existing codes for calculation of electromagnetic scattering by a single cylinder are based on Mie theory, which is an analytical solution of Maxwell's equations in terms of infinite series. [1]
