The recent approach to the quantum-classical mechanics of
phase space dependent operators is recast
into a formalism for wave fields.
It turns out that such wave fields
obey a system of coupled non-linear equations where
each equation is not Hermitian. However,
backward and forward time-evolution
is combined in such a way as to conserve probability.
Notwithstanding their non-linear form, the equations of motion
for such phase space dependent wave fields can be
expressed by means of a suitable non-Hamiltonian bracket.
Thus, it can be realized that the non-Hamiltonian dynamics of
quantum-classical wave fields is a straightforward
generalization of the formalism for non-linear
quantum mechanics that Weinberg proposed recently.
