We present a Mueller matrix decomposition based on the differential formulation of the Mueller calculus. The differential
Mueller matrix is obtained from the macroscopic matrix through an eigenanalysis. It is subsequently resolved
into the complete set of 16 differential matrices that correspond to the basic types of optical behavior for
depolarizing anisotropic media. The method is successfully applied to the polarimetric analysis of several samples.
The differential parameters enable one to perform an exhaustive characterization of anisotropy and depolarization.
This decomposition is particularly appropriate for studying media in which several polarization effects take place
