Sometimes the Stokes parameters are combined into a vector, cleverly called the Stokes vector. The Stokes vector S is simply S = (P_I, P_Q, P_U, P_V).

From top to bottom:

Linearly polarized, horizontal: S = (1,1,0,0) Linearly polarized, vertical: S = (1,-1,0,0) Linearly polarized, +45 degrees: S = (1,0,1,0) Linearly polarized, -45 degrees: S = (1,0,-1,0) Circularly polarized, right handed: S = (1,0,0,-1) Circularly polarized, left handed: S = (1,0,0,1)

All the polarizations have been drawn on different axes to better illustrate how they can be decomposed.
