Based on the system-reservoir theory we have established a generalization of the master equation for a class of nonlinear oscillators within the Born-Markov approximation. We have made a detailed study of the two model systems, e.g., the Morse oscillator and the quartic oscillator as immediate application. Significant interplay of dissipation and nonlinearity has been demonstrated even in the restricted case of weak damping and low finite temperatures.
