Abstract
We discuss how a spectral-domain method in combination with a split-operator technique can be used to calculate exact solutions of the time-dependent Maxwell's equations. We apply this technique to study the propagation of a light pulse through an inhomogeneous medium consisting of multiple random scatterers. We investigate the validity of the Boltzmann equation by directly comparing its solution with the ensemble averaged Maxwell solution.
