Abstract
On the basis of spin continuity equation we study the propagation of light in locally isotropic inhomogeneous media. We have obtained refined value of linear birefringence of order ((lambda) /(alpha) )2 in layered media. We have studied spin transformations in perturbed weakly guiding fibers and proved that spin dynamics in fibers is governed by Heisenberg equation for a spin-1/2 particle.
