Paper Abstract

On the basis of covariant approach some generalizations of the theory of polarization self-action effects in isotropic (polarization inhomogeneous) resonance media have been done. The results obtained demonstrate influence of the degree of polarization on evolution of polarization parameters of laser radiation propagating in polarization inhomogeneous media. We present new theoretical findings as well as demonstrate agreement between our results and known experimental data.
