The possibility of visualization and animation by Mathematica of polarization influence on fiber optic elements and interferometer work is presented. The above description based on an application of the Jones' matrix calculus for any fiber optic elements and optical part of interferometer systems. The simple method to study the differences and similarities in a description of a particular group of interferometers by Mathematica is shown. The analysis of the possibilities of a reduction of polarization effect on particular fiber optic elements and interferometer is the main advantage of this Mathematica application.
