%X The scattering of scalar waves by a set of scatterers is considered. It is proven that the scattered field can be represented as an integral supported by any smooth surface enclosing the scatterers. This is a generalization of the series expansion over spherical harmonics and spherical Bessel functions for spherical geometries. More precisely, given a set of scatterers, the field scattered by any subset can be expressed as an integral over any smooth surface enclosing the given subset alone. It is then possible to solve the multiple scattering problem by using this integral representation instead of an expansion over spherical harmonics. This result is used to develop an extension of the Fast Multipole Method in order to deal with subsets that are not enclosed within non-intersecting balls.
