I would like to know how you get from the classical 4-vector polarization

to the two component quantum polarization?

thank you

You might want to rephrase your question to include more detail,Hi

I would like to know how you get from the classical 4-vector polarization

to the two component quantum polarization?

since it's not very clear what you're really asking. I'm guessing

you're interested in something about the 2-component polarization

of photons and maybe neutrinos, but... hmm... I'm not sure from your

question.

A classical EM wave also has only two independent possible polarizations.yes I am interested in how one gets a 2-component polarization of a photon (which represents a quantum bit) from a 4-component classical polarization vector.

(I.e., you're still not giving enough background/detail in your question to enable

a satisfactory answer.)
