The problems are considered of optimal parametrization of asymmetrical complex operators from the space of congruent transformations. An optimal group of the backscattering phase matrix parameters is proposed which is sufficient and nonredundant characteristic of the electromagnetic wave backscattering properties of an arbitrary medium and has strict physical interpretation. It is shown that nonreciprocal properties of the medium manifest through its backscattering phase matrix invariant characteristics that cause its asymmetry.
