Generalized trace condition on the Mueller–Jones polarization matrix
The purpose of this Communication is to derive a generalized trace condition for a Mueller–Jones polarization matrix that is based on the Brosseau–Barakat [ Opt. Commun. 84, 127 ( 1991)] analysis of the effects of fluctuations in a linear scattering medium on a polarized wave field. The expression developed contains the previously known trace condition for a deterministic optical system as a special case.
