Electromagnetic codes available (16.05.1994)

This note intends to answer frequently asked questions  con-
cerning  electromagnetic  codes.  It  mainly lists codes for
computation  of  electromagnetic  scattering  by  dielectric
spheres, spheroids, bodies of revolution and irregular scat-
If you know of any code not listed, please send an e-mail to
