Memristive system models have previously been proposed to describe ionic memory resistors. However, these models neglect the mass of ions and repulsive forces between ions and are not well formulated in terms of semiconductor and ionic physics. This article proposes an alternative dynamic systems model in which the system state is derived from a second order differential equation in the form of a driven damped harmonic oscillator. Application is made to Schottky and tunneling barriers…

Dynamic Systems Model for Filamentary Mem-Resistors
A dynamic systems model is proposed describing memory resistors which include a filament conductive bridge. In this model the system state is defined by both a dynamic tunneling barrier (associated
Set, Reset, and Retention Times for Ionic and Filamentary Mem-Resistors
A dynamic systems model has previously been proposed for mem-resistors based on a driven damped harmonic oscillator differential equation describing electron and ionic depletion widths in a thin

It is shown that by modelling the magneto statics of the memory-holding ionic current (oxygen vacancies in the Strukov memristor), the Memristor's magnetic flux can be identified as the flux arising from the ions.
Memresistors and non-memristive zero-crossing hysteresis curves
It has been erroneously asserted by the circuit theorist Leon Chua that all zero-crossing pinched hysteresis curves define memristors. This claim has been used by Stan Williams of HPLabs to assert
Pinched Hysteresis Loops Are a Fingerprint of Square Law Capacitors
It has been claimed that pinched hysteresis curves are the fingerprint of memristors. This paper demonstrates that a linear resistor in parallel with a nonlinear, square law capacitor also produces
The missing magnetic flux in the HP memristor found
Ever since real-world two terminal memristor devices were created, detractors have derided them as not `true' Chua memristors because there is no magnetic flux in the system. This report shows that

The original memristive systems framework is extended to incorporate 3-terminal, non-passive devices and the applicability of such dynamic systems models to 1) the Widrow-Hoff memistor, 2) floating gate memory cells, and 3) nano-ionic FETs is explained.
Coupled ionic and electronic transport model of thin-film semiconductor memristive behavior.
A more physical model based on numerical solutions of coupled drift-diffusion equations for electrons and ions with appropriate boundary conditions is provided to obtain physical insight into the transport processes responsible for memristive behavior in semiconductor films.
A Memadmittance Systems Model for Thin Film Memory Materials
In 1971 the memristor was originally postulated as a new non-linear circuit element relating the time integrals of current and voltage. More recently researchers at HPLabs have linked the theoretical
Memristive devices and systems
A broad generalization of memristors--a recently postulated circuit element--to an interesting class of nonlinear dynamical systems called memristive systems is introduced. These systems are
The missing memristor found
It is shown, using a simple analytical example, that memristance arises naturally in nanoscale systems in which solid-state electronic and ionic transport are coupled under an external bias voltage.
Simple model for ac ionic conduction in solids.
A model for the ac conduction in ionically conducting solids that takes into account, in a simple way, the interaction between carriers and the effect of the relaxation of the ionic atmosphere is presented.
