Paper Abstract

Lately definite efforts were undertaken in the field of elucidation of physical meaning and terminology conformity: depolarizing, nondepolarizing, deterministic, and nondeterministic systems. In spite of that this problem do not completely solve yet. In particular, a result issued from such situation is an existence of surprising assertion that system polarization properties of which are determined by Mueller- Jones (i.e. deterministic one) matrix can depolarize incident radiation. In this paper the detail analysis of the situation was conducted. On basis of this analysis new physically nondiscrepant and clear classification of systems 'polarization behavior' is presented.
