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 unconventional in the sense that while they behave like resistive devices, they can be endowed with a rather exotic variety of dynamic characteristics. While possessing memory and exhibiting small-signal inductive or capacitive effects, they are incapable of energy discharge and they introduce no phase… 
The memristive system behavior of a diac
The memristor was introduced as a nonlinear circuit element in 1971, and systems showing memristor-like properties such as zero-crossing hysteresis loops were described in 1976. In 2008, a thin-film
Memristor based-elements for chaotic circuits
The peculiar features of the memristor, a fundamental passive two-terminal element characterized by nonlinear relationship between charge and flux, promise to revolutionize integrated circuit design

This work studies the composite characteristics of memristive elements connected in regular one-dimensional configurations using a nonlinear memristor model and carries out simulations and analyze the characteristics of complex Memristor circuits, as well as investigate the relationships among the single devices.
The Desired Memristor for Circuit Designers
Memristors are two-terminal devices with varying resistance, where the behavior is dependent on the history of the device. In recent years, different physical phenomena of resistive switching have

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.
Complex dynamical behavior in memristor–capacitor systems
The parallel and series circuits of a Hewlett–Packard memristor and a capacitor are foundational building blocks for realistic memristive circuits. Due to the nonlinearity of the memristor,
First order devices, hybrid memristors, and the frontiers of nonlinear circuit theory
Several devices exhibiting memory effects have shown up in nonlinear circuit theory in recent years. Among others, these circuit elements include Chua’s memristors, as well as memcapacitors and
Minimizing the Hodgkin-Huxley Model
The research sheds light on the feasibility of creating artificial axons (and neural networks) with thin-film memristors by using MATLAB to numerically obtain the voltage response of an axon to steady and alternating current stimuli and Kirchhoff’s laws to obtain the current response of a memristive circuit to an alternating voltage stimulus.

This tutorial shows that memristor span a much broader vista of complex phenomena and potential applications in many fields, including neurobiology, and presents toy memristors that can mimic the classic habituation and LTP learning phenomena.
