Using the angular spectrum representation of fields and the first Born approximation we develop a theory of scattering of scalar waves with any spectral composition and any correlation properties from collections of particles which have either deterministic or random distributions of the index of refraction and locations. An example illustrating the far-field intensity and the far-field spectral degree of coherence produced on scattering of a model field from collections of several particles with Gaussian potentials is considered.
