Pancharatnam Phase and Photon Polarization Optics [article]

S.C. Tiwari
2006 arXiv   pre-print
A critique is offered on this factor of half anomaly in the geometric phase, and a natural resolution using Riemann sphere polarization representation is suggested.  ...  Parallel transport of a vector around a closed curve on the surface of a sphere leads to a direction holonomy which can be related with a geometric phase that is equal to the solid angle subtended by the  ...  a unitary picture for optical phenomena.  ...

Polarized-Light Navigation by Insects

Rüdiger Wehner
1976 Scientific American  
Because bees have developed the abstract language of the dance as a means of telling one another about naviga tion angles, each individual worker bee must be able to make use of a reference point that  ...  All our evidence points, however, to the fact that the bee's brain incorporates a rath er generalized and simple representation of the distribution of polarized light in the sky.  ...

Polarized process algebra with reactive composition

J.A. Bergstra, I. Bethke
2005 Theoretical Computer Science  
The technical goal of this paper is to provide a definition of reactive composition for polarized processes and to prove that reactive composition thus defined is associative.  ...  The scheduled concurrent composition of two polarized processes is called client-server composition or reactive composition, placing one process in the role of a client and the other process in the role  ...  One may conclude that recursion equations for polarized processes may not be ideally suited for this purpose. A simpler representation is found if program algebra is used.  ...
