Review paper is available from J. Opt. Soc. Am. site. Draine, B.T., & Flatau, P.J., "Discrete dipole approximation for scattering calculations", J. Opt. Soc. Am. A, 11, 1491-1499 (1994) (we check citations to this paper to track the overall DDSCAT use; on occasion we implement code improvements that way!)
