Abstract

A general formulation of the additive composition and decomposition of Mueller matrices is presented, which is expressed in adequate terms for properly performing the “polarimetric subtraction,” from a given depolarizing Mueller matrix M, of the Mueller matrix of a given nondepolarizing component that is incoherently embedded in the whole system represented by M. A general and comprehensive procedure for the polarimetric subtraction of depolarizing Mueller matrices is also developed.
