Various theoretical investigations of electromagnetic scattering are reviewed that illustrate the interplay between basic researches and application needs. Topics covered include stochastic variational techniques for vector wave scattering by random systems of general electromagnetic properties, such as rough surfaces or chaff clouds; the development of simple but effective trial functions for variational usage; and the treatment of electromagnetic induction and color vision as vector field scattering problems.
