In this paper we consider the effects of stimulated light scattering in transparent spherical particles (stimulated Raman scattering, stimulated Mandel’shtam–Brillouin scattering, stimulated fluorescence) connected with the amplification of spontaneous scattering wave by resonant modes of the internal optical field of a particle. These phenomena are described theoretically from a unified physical viewpoint, their common regularities are established, the threshold and angular behavior of stimulated scattering are discussed. The effects of Raman light scattering on surface waves caused by ponderomotive light field forces on liquid particles are studied theoretically. We also consider the angular structure of the field of a scattered wave.
