Paper Abstract

In the last decade we have elaborated an approach to the description of the interaction of the polarized light with the polarization devices alternative to the standard matrix (Jones and Mueller) languages, namely a vectorial pure operatorial Pauli algebraic approach. Here we present a complete, coherent and essentialized survey of this approach and we point out its advantages. The operators of various static and dynamic polarization devices, the density operator of the partially polarized light and the light - devices interactions are presented in this "non-matrix" or "coordinate-free" language. Some new results are obtained in this frame illustrating the effectiveness and the compactness of this approach.
