A matrix balanced version of the recursive centered T matrix algorithm applicable to systems possessing resonant interparticle couplings is presented. Possible domains of application include systems containing interacting localized plasmon resonances, surface resonances, and photonic jet phenomena. This method is of particular interest when considering modifications to complex systems. The numerical accuracy of this technique is demonstrated in a study of particles with strongly interacting localized plasmon resonances.
