Wave Retarders in Tandem

Write the Jones matrices for the following retarders:

(a) A π/2 wave retarder with the fast axis along the x direction.

(b) A π wave retarder with the fast axis at 45° to the x direction.

(c) A π/2 wave retarder with the fast axis along the y direction.

If these three retarders are placed in tandem, with (c) following (b) following (a), find the resulting rotation. What happens if the order of the three retarders is reversed?
