Program of quantization of nonlinear theories


In this paper, we concentrate our attention upon the troubles in the construction of nontrivial models in nonlinear quantum field theory which may be connected with the already known axioms of quantum field theory. We propose to come back to classical nonlinear (quasilinear) field theory for obtaining some information how to change these axioms. Simultaneously, we propose a program of quantization of these theories using Riemann waves, multiple simple waves, and simple elements.
