Paper Abstract

Polarization coherent states (PCS) are considered as generalized coherent states of SU(2)p group of the polarization invariance of the light fields. In terms of PCS the polarization quasi probability functions are defined, which determine the quasi classical description of the statistical polarization properties of quantum light fields. The geometric phases of PCS are introduced in a way analogous to that used in the classical polarization optics.
