A hyper-perturbation approach is used to find the Taylor expansion formulas for the dispersion curves of arbitrarily indexed optical fibers. These formulas are then used to give analytically the birefringence characteristics of optical fibers with biaxially anisotropic core and cladding. The dependence of the fiber birefringence on the index difference, index anisotropy, and the normalized frequency is explicitly determined. Simple, accurate analytic formulas have been presented for anisotropic fibers with step- and parabolic-index profiles. Numerical results are in good agreement with the literature results
