**Jones Vector: It is actually a complex vector with 3 free parameters**

It transforms under the Pauli matrices. It is a spinor

**From the quantum-mechanical point of view, the wave function cannot be measured directly.**

Observables are made of quadratic forms of the wave function: J is a density matrix : The coherence matrix

Like Jones matrices, J also belongs to the SL(2,C) group, and can be decomposed in the basis of the Pauli matrices. Is the Stokes Vector

**The Stokes vector is the quadractic form of a spinor**

The Stokes vector is the quadractic form of a spinor. It is a bi-spinor, or also a 4-vector

14
From group theory, the Mueller matrix belongs to a group of transformations which is the square of SL(2,C) Actually a subgroup of this general group called O+(3,1) or Lorentz group

17
Mueller Calculus Any macroscopic optical device that transforms one input Stokes vector to an output Stokes vector can be written as a Mueller matrix Lorentz group is a group under matrix multiplication: A sequence of optical devices has as Mueller matrix the product of the individual matrices
