Paper Abstract

We provide the expression of the probability density function (pdf) of polarization mode dispersion (PMD) in the optical fiber system concatenated with different pdf distribution sections. In recursive form for the first time, this makes the calculation of the characteristic pdf much easier. This calculation method is confirmed by the experiment.
