Abstract
Differential Mueller matrix of nondepolarizing anisotropic homogeneous media is derived. It has been shown that equality of refraction indexes (absorption coefficients) of anisotropic media is not sufficient condition for the absence of birefringence (dichroism). Additional conditions for the eigenpolarizations of media to be pure dichroic or birefringent has been analysed. Relation between differential Jones matrix and permittivity and conductivity tensors is derived. It has been shown that eigenpolarizations are nonorthogonal only if eigenvectors of permittivity and conductivity tensors not coincide.
