# Two theorems on the outer product of input and output Stokes vectors for deterministic optical systems

@article{Kuntman2019TwoTO, title={Two theorems on the outer product of input and output Stokes vectors for deterministic optical systems}, author={Mehmet Ali Kuntman and Ertan Kuntman}, journal={arXiv: Optics}, year={2019} }

$2\times2$ complex Jones matrix transforms two dimensional complex Jones vectors into complex Jones vectors and accounts for phase introduced by deterministic optical systems. On the other hand, Mueller-Jones matrix transforms four parameter real Stokes vectors into four parameter real Stokes vectors that contain no information about phase. Previously, a $4\times4$ complex matrix ($\mathbf{Z}$ matrix) was introduced. $\mathbf{Z}$ matrix is analogous to the Jones matrix and it is also akin to…
