Paper Abstract

The general approach to the problems of recognition and classification of objects based on the analysis of its anisotropy properties is discussed. Anisotropy properties of objects are presented by seven independent parameters having clear physical sense: relative value p and orientation (theta) of linear amplitude dichroism; relative value r of circular dichroism; relative value (delta) and orientation (alpha) of linear birefringence; value (phi) of circular birefringence and value of depolarization P. Analysis of anisotropy properties and obtainment of concrete values of above parameters are based on the theorem of decomposition claiming that the nondepolarizing Mueller matrix can always be presented on basis of the matrices of the phase and amplitude anisotropy. Developed in details classification system is presented. Taking into account the facts of presence or absence of any sort of anisotropy and of depolarization any object can be referred to the one of the 32 classes. If information on isotropic changes of amplitude and phase of radiation interacting with an object is interest than the analysis will be carried out in extended basis of anisotropy. Extended basis of anisotropy is the full equal model of real medium.
