Abstract

The use of a symbolic math system, muMATH-79, to solve polarized light problems is described. The problems are setup using Jones calculus, and muMATH running on a Z-80 microprocessor multiplies out the Jones matrices and simplifies the final algebraic expressions. Only a minimal amount of operator interaction with the microcomputer is required. Several examples are given.
