Paper Abstract

The behavior of the Pointing vector in the area of elementary polarization singularities with one or two C-points, which are bounded by regular shape s-contour is considered. It was shown that the disclinations, which move, are born and annihilate along s-contour, correspond to the singularities of the distribution of the parameters of instantaneous Poynting vector. C-points are associated with the "vortex" kind singularities of the averaged Pointing vector field if the handedness factor and topological charge of C-point are characterized by the different signs. "Impassive" Pointing singularities arise in the area, if the signs are the same. Elementary topology for the Pointing vector field is formulated. The results of the computer simulation are presented.
