Thanks for your answers, Peter, I felt I was wrong about Einstein-Smoluchowski.
I already had those references you suggested about Heyney-Greenstein approximation, but they were not helpful.
I mean, I know the DEFINITION of those quantities (g_f, g_b, r_f), but I don't understand their MEANING, neither I know HOW TO CALCULATE them.
Does it just mean that we are splitting a general Mie scattering in a linear combination of two components, one forward and one backward? I think so. Then: how do I determine the coefficient r_f of the combination, and how do I choose g_f and g_b for a given material?
I don't understand it from the Physics Reference manual of from Milagro presentation, and I've been looking for some other reference for quite a while but couldn't find anything, so I would really appreciate if someone would be a little more clear with me.
