In this chapter we intend to abandon the restrictions of linear response theory. First of all let us remember that the initial equations (2.24) and (2.27,28) are generally valid. It is interesting, that, starting from these equations one can derive a formalism which is surprisingly close to the formalism of linear response theory. In particular, the kinetic equations in terms of memory kernels (12.9) and the equations (13.14,15,16) for these memory kernel can be taken over to the general case without major changes.
