We construct here a formal operator formulation of a singular theory. In tackling this problem we shall bear in mind that there are many physically equivalent classical theories which can describe a physical system. Hence one may believe that all the quantum theories corresponding to these classical theories must also be physically equivalent and that to construct the quantum theory for a given physical system, it suffices to ”quantize” one of the corresponding physically equivalent classical theories.
