Abstract

The spectral Stokes singularities are introduced to describe the polarization singularities of stochastic electromagnetic beams. The motion and annihilation, as well as the changes in the polarization of spectral Stokes singularities, take place in the free-space propagation. The results are illustrated by numerical examples.
