We examine the possibility to study the statistical properties of trapped ultracold bosons with light scattering. We derive general effective hamiltonian and show that the spectrum of scattered photons contains information about density-density correlations. As a specific example we discuss light scattering as a potential tool to probe the Mott transition in optical lattice and Anderson localization in incommensurate superlattice.
