Memristive devices and systems

  title={Memristive devices and systems},
  author={Leon Ong Chua and Sung Mo Kang},
  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
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… Expand
