The work defines the general form of the Jones vector and establishes the Jones matrix for polarizers, wave plates, Faraday rotators, Q-plates, and spiral phase plates. Then we establish the generalized Jones calculus for vortex, vector, and vortex-vector beam transformations. The systematic formalism presents the theoretical arrangements in manipulating the phase and polarization of the structured lights.
