None regarding polarization in gps

This is the first time I will be simulating polarization and I'll be doing it using gps.

The command /gps/polarizarion Px Py Pz where Px, Py and Pz are the doubles that sets the polarization of the source .. Are these the Stokes parameters ?? The parameters for linear polarization, circular polarization and elliptical polarization ..So if my source photons are linearly polarized only, then the values for Px, Py and Pz would be 1,0,0 .. Is my understanding correct or is this something else ...??? These are not vectors ..but doubles .. Could you help me out ??

Regards and thanks, Manju Sudhakar
