Starting from the differential equation that relatesthe Jones matrix of a polarization-mode dipersion (PMD) fiber toits output dispersion vector, the analytical expressions of the matrixcoefficients are determined in the case of a dispersion vectorrotating on a circonference in the Stokes space. This model, thatneeds only few parameters with known statistics, is applied to evaluatethe performance of an optical system. The results obtainedwith it and with other models proposed in literature are comparedto those evaluated by numerical simulations with all-order PMDeffects, showing that our model gives an accurate representation ofreal system performances.
