The results of modeling the scattering of light by nanoparticles of complex shape using the generalized source method are presented. It is shown that the approach implementing direct solution of the implicit equation, which is derived by the generalized source method using the three-dimensional Green’s function, in conjunction with the fast Fourier transform significantly improves convergence of the method of volume integral equation and considerably extends the range of its applicability.
