Abstract [en]

A scalar Wigner distribution function for describing polarized light is proposed in analogy with the treatment of spin variables in quantum kinetic theory. The formalism is applied to the propagation of circularly polarized light in nonlinear Kerr media, and an extended phase-space evolution equation is derived along with invariant quantities. The formalism is additionally used to analyze the modulational instability. (C) 2013 Optical Society of America
