A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical Systems. IV.

- R. Jones
- Physics
- 1 August 1942

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 two… Expand

A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical SystemsII. Proof of Three General Equivalence Theorems

- H. Hurwitz, R. Jones
- Physics
- 1 July 1941

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 retardation… Expand

A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical Systems. VII. Properties of the N-Matrices

- R. Jones
- Physics
- 1 August 1948

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 paper… Expand

A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical SystemsI. Description and Discussion of the Calculus

- R. Jones
- Physics
- 1 July 1941

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 the… Expand

The eigenvalue spectrum of a large symmetric random matrix

- S. Edwards, R. Jones
- Mathematics
- 1 October 1976

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 probability… Expand

A new classification system for radiation detectors.

- R. Jones
- Physics, Medicine
- Journal of the Optical Society of America
- 1 May 1949

In Part I, a classification system for radiation detectors is proposed. The system is based upon the manner in which the noise equivalent power depends upon the time constant and the sensitive area,… Expand

A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical SystemsIII. The Sohncke Theory of Optical Activity

- R. Jones
- Physics
- 1 July 1941

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 the… Expand

New calculus for the treatment of optical systems. VIII. Electromagnetic theory

- R. Jones
- Physics
- 1 February 1956

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-matrices… Expand
