Abstract We present a computer program for the simulation of Mie scattering in case of arbitrarily large size parameters. The elements of the scattering matrix, efficiency factors as well as the corresponding cross-sections, the albedo and the scattering asymmetry parameter are calculated. Single particles as well as particle ensembles consisting of several components and particle size distributions can be considered. Title of program: <b><i>miex</i></b> Catalogue Id: ADUD_v1_0 Nature of problem Among a variety of applications, Mie scattering is of essential importance for the continuum radiative transfer in cosmic dust configurations. In this particular case, Mie theory describes the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with spherical dust grains on the basis of their complex refractive index and size parameter. Both, broad grain size distributions (radii a: nanometers -- millimeters) and a very wide wavelength range (λ ≈ 10 -10 -10 -2 m) of the interacting radiation are considered ... Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADUD_v1_0; <b><i>miex</i></b>; 10.1016/j.cpc.2004.06.070 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
