Nonlinear extension of quantum mechanics: Remarks and recent results

Abstract

We discuss the problem of extending the framework of quantum mechanics so that observables are represented by nonlinear operators in a Hilbert space or manifold. Our motivation includes the derivation of certain nonlinear Schrödinger equations from diffeomorphism group representations. In this context we review some groups of nonlinear gauge transformations.
