### Abstract

A general equation for the three-dimensional angular distribution of photoelectrons ejected from fixed-in-space molecules of any symmetry by light of arbitrary polarization is derived. The state of the light polarization is described by the Stokes parameters. The equation is also valid for photoionization of polarized atoms and aligned or oriented rotating molecules. In the particular case of linear molecules the three-dimensional angular distribution of photoelectrons is fully characterized by five two-dimensional angular distributions. Simple ways to determine experimentally these two-dimensional functions are mentioned. The application of general equations is illustrated by a numerical example of photoionization of the C K-shell of CO molecule in the region of the σ* shape resonance.
