We investigate the quantum properties of the theory of ternons proposed earlier with the purpose of calculating the propagator of the composite gauge field in 4 dimensions. We discuss the Hamiltonian and find a nontrivial measure in the Feynman path integral. Auxiliary fields are introduced and the ternon fields are integrated out. The remaining effective theory is a gauge theory with certain additional interactions. The steepest descent equations in the large N limit are obtained where N is related to the number of ternons.
