A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical Systems. IV.
Part IV is divided into two sections. The first is devoted to some additions to the general theory developed in Part I, and the second section to the derivation of the matrices representing twoExpand

A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical SystemsII. Proof of Three General Equivalence Theorems
The general theory developed in Part I is used to prove three equivalence theorems about optical systems of the type under discussion. We prove that any optical system which contains only retardationExpand

A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical Systems. VII. Properties of the N-Matrices
The preceding papers of this series have examined the properties of an optical calculus which represented each of the separate elements of an optical system by means of a single matrix M. This paperExpand

A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical SystemsI. Description and Discussion of the Calculus
The effect of a plate of anisotropic material, such as a crystal, on a collimated beam of polarized light may always be represented mathematically as a linear transformation of the components of theExpand

The eigenvalue spectrum of a large symmetric random matrix
A new and straightforward method is presented for calculating the eigenvalue spectrum of a large symmetric square matrix each of whose upper triangular elements is described by a Gaussian probabilityExpand

A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical SystemsIII. The Sohncke Theory of Optical Activity
Reusch and Sohncke have examined the properties of a system containing a large number n of identical retardation plates, each of which is rotated with respect to the one preceding it through theExpand

New calculus for the treatment of optical systems. VIII. Electromagnetic theory
The preceding seven papers of this series present a systematic procedure for computing the effect of an optical system on the state of polarization of the light that passes through it. The M-matricesExpand
