We present an overview of Clifford algebra and its application to polarization-mode dispersion and polarization-dependent loss. We demonstrate that the Jones matrix corresponds to a Lorentz transformation in this algebra and obtain its frequency-dependent evolution through the Magnus expansion. We also comment on the application of Clifford algebra methods to partially polarized light.
