## Mueller calculus
## Additional recommended knowledgeAny fully polarized, partially polarized, or unpolarized state of light can be represented by a Stokes vector (). Any optical element can be represented by a Mueller matrix (M). If a beam of light is initially in the state and then passes through an optical element M and comes out in a state , then it is written If a beam of light passes through optical element M given that matrix multiplication is associative it can be written Beware, matrix multiplication is Below are listed the Mueller matrices for some ideal common optical elements: Linear polarizer (Horizontal Transmission)
