Abstract

An analysis of the operators of some widespread nonorthogonal polarizers is performed on the basis of the polar factorization theorem, in pure operatorial (nonmatrix) Dirac algebraic language. The role of the unitary polar component as a converter of the two sets of singular eigenvectors of the operator, one in the other, is emphasized in each case; this role is maintained for the singular operators corresponding to these special nonorthogonal polarizers.
