Paper Abstract

The purpose of this communication is to describe an analysis for studying the propagation of a partially polarized wave within an arbitrarily linear anisotropic medium. We consider quasimonochromatic light in the form of plane waves of infinite extent propagating along the direction characterized by the unit vector e3 which together with the directions e1 and e2 form an orthogonal set.
