Abstract

The group-velocity concept of a complex of modes is investigated, and the findings are related to power and energy. A special case of interest is polarization mode dispersion. This approach permits a generalization of polarization mode dispersion to the case of polarization mixing of multiple modes. Further, it is shown that first- and second-order polarization mode dispersions are related to an energy matrix.
