Stokes parameters of polarized field

returns
the four `G`

= stokes(`fv`

)*Stokes* parameters `G`

of
a polarized field or set of fields specified in `fv`

.
The field should be expressed in terms of linear polarization components.
The expression of a field in terms of a two-row vector of linear
polarization components is called the *Jones vector formalism*.
