In this chapter the problem of elastic light scattering, ie interaction of electromagnetic waves with finite objects, is discussed. A detailed overview of one of the widely used methods for plasmonics, the discrete dipole approximation (DDA), is presented. This includes the theory of the DDA, practical recommendations for using available computer codes, and discussion of the DDA accuracy.
