Three different methods can be used to numerically compute the gn coefficients in the generalized Lorenz-Mie theory. Two of them are rigorous and involve (i) numerical evaluation of quadratures and (ii) numerical evaluation of finite series. The third way relies on the so-called localized interpretation that we discussed in previous papers. These three methods are discussed and compared.
