  author={Massimiliano Di Ventra and Yuriy V. Pershin},
We discuss the physical properties of realistic memristive, memcapacitive and meminductive systems. In particular, by employing the well-known theory of response functions and microscopic derivations, we show that resistors, capacitors and inductors with memory emerge naturally in the response of systems—especially those of nanoscale dimensions—subjected to external perturbations. As a consequence, since memristances, memcapacitances and meminductances are simply response functions, they are… 
Understanding memristors and memcapacitors in engineering mechanics applications
A significant event happened for electrical engineering in 2008, when researchers at HP Labs announced that they had found “the missing memristor,” a fourth basic circuit element that was postulated
What are Memristor, Memcapacitor, and Meminductor?
It is found that the memristance, memcapacitance, and meminductance are caused by different combinations of nonlinear electric responses.

It is shown that the number of independent memory states in a memristive circuit is constrained by the circuit conservation laws, and that the dynamics preserves these symmetry by means of a projection on the physical subspace.
Purely Mechanical Memristors and the Missing Memristor
This work is suppressed since 2010 and led to established scientists to be banned on the arXiv. We thank viXra for making critical work like this still available to relatively uncorrupted parts of
Switching Synchronization and Metastable States in 1D Memristive Networks
It is shown that metastable transmission lines composed of metastable memristive circuits can be used to transfer the information from one space location to another and the triad of memory networks functionalities in their 1D networks: information processing, storage and transfer.

A SPICE model for a memristive device with threshold voltage that has been proposed by the present authors is introduced and the range of applicability of the selected physical model is demonstrated.
Similarity between the response of memristive and memcapacitive circuits subjected to ramped voltage
Abstract. We report a similar feature in the response of resistor–memristor and capacitor–memcapacitor circuits with threshold-type memory devices driven by triangular waveform voltage. In both
Revisiting the memristor concept within basic circuit theory
In this paper, we revisit the memristor concept within circuit theory. We start from the definition of the basic circuit elements; then, we introduce the original formulation of the memristor concept
The physical and circuit-theoretic significance of the Memristor : Full version
The present opinion is that the framework of basic circuit theory and its connection with applications should be logically expanded in order to naturally include the new element, the memristor.
Reliable SPICE Simulations of Memristors, Memcapacitors and Meminductors
A collection of models of different memory circuit elements and a methodology for their accurate and reliable modeling in the SPICE environment are presented and codes of these models written in the most popular SPICE versions are provided for the benefit of the reader.


Circuit Elements With Memory: Memristors, Memcapacitors, and Meminductors
It is argued that capacitive and inductive elements, namely, capacitors and inductors whose properties depend on the state and history of the system, are common at the nanoscale, where the dynamical properties of electrons and ions are likely to depend upon the history ofThe system, at least within certain time scales.
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
Complex dynamics and scale invariance of one-dimensional memristive networks.
It is shown that even the simplest one-dimensional network formed by the most common memristive elements with voltage threshold bears nontrivial physical properties.

The memory properties of various materials and systems which appear most strikingly in their non-trivial, time-dependent resistive, capacitative and inductive characteristics are described within the framework of memristors, memcapacitors and meminductors.

Bipolar voltage-actuated switches, a family of nonlinear dynamical memory devices, can execute material implication (IMP), which is a fundamental Boolean logic operation on two variables p and q such that pIMPq is equivalent to (NOTp)ORq.
Solid-state memcapacitive system with negative and diverging capacitance
