Light scattering by macroscopically volume element, which consists of arbitrarily shaped particles with arbitrary square integrable probability density function over orientations is considered. The T-matrix approach and the quantum theory of angular momentum are used to develop a rigorous analytical method to compute the elements of the Mueller matrix, the Stokes vector of scattered radiation for arbitrary number of incoherent sources of the incident radiation, and scattered flux into any conical solid angle. Some consequences of the analytical results are presented.
