The Mie Calculator (MIE) is a collection of routines which allow
to compute the absorption and scattering cross section of small
particles, their scattering matrices and the Planck averages
of their absorption. The materials of interest may be
characterized by dielectric constants or a set of oscillators
which stand for the absorption
bands. The scattering matrices are only computed for
spherical grains, the other quantities may be obtained also
for arbitrary ellipsoids in the quasistatic limit.
