The structure of soliton solutions of classical integrable nonlinear evolution equations, which can be solved through the Hirota transformation, suggests a new way for the construction of nonlinear quantum-dynamical systems that are based on the classical equations. In the new approach, the classical soliton solution is mapped into an operator, U, which is a nonlinear functional of the particle-number operators over a Fock space of quantum particles. U obeys the evolution equation; the classical soliton solutions are the eigenvalues of U in multi-particle states in the Fock space. The construction easily allows for the incorporation of particle interactions, which generate soliton effects that do not have a classical analog. In this paper, this new approach is applied to the case of the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili II equation. The nonlinear quantum-dynamical system describes a set of M = (2S + 1) particles with intrinsic spin S, which interact in clusters of 1 ≤ N ≤ (M - 1) particles.
