Abstract
A determined chaos of a polarized light field in multimode fibers could be defined by a diversity of physical processes. There is a mode and polarized dispersion, birefringence of a material core and also the topological Berry's phase and the optical Magnus effect (OME) which destroy an evolution of a polarized light in multimode fibers. In the present paper I would like to draw your attention to the interesting phenomenon, namely, the optical Magnus effect in an inhomogeneous medium. The stochastic pattern of the determinate chaos is in essence caused by this effect. Many assumptions on the behavior of an inhomogeneous wave due to total reflections of a plane wave appeared just after the discovery of the longitudinal shift of Gooss and Hanchen. However only in 1955 the paper by F. Fedorov about a transverse energy electric wave flow due to a total reflection was published.
