EPJ ST Special Issue: Memristor-based systems: Nonlinearity, dynamics and application

The term Memristor refers to the special electronic component porposed by Leon Chua. After the implementation of memristor at HP Labs in 2008, there has been an increasing interest in memristor-based systems. Previous research has established that the existence of a pinched hysteresis effect plays a critical role in memristor-based system. Investigating the nonlinearity in memristor is useful not only for understanding its intrinsic features but also for developing new advanced designs. Recently, various complex dynamics have been obversed in memristive sytems such as chaos, extreme multistability, initial condition-dependent dynamics, coexistence of multiple attractors, autowave, and Turing patterns etc. However, discovering dynamics of such systems is still an interesting topic, which should be carried out further. It is noted that memristor-based systems have been the subject of many studies in different areas ranging from neural network, reconfigurable computing, memory technology to artificial intelligence. Potential applications of memrisive systems attract significant attention of the research community and industry.

This special issue is dedicated to present state-of-the-art results on memristor-based systems. The contribution to the Special Issue should be concentrate on the nonlinear aspects, dynamics, and applications of memristor-based sytems

The topics include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Physical properties of memristors
  • Nonlinearity and complexity
  • New modeling directions
  • Dynamics of memristor-based systems
  • Advanced architectures and implementations
  • Novel applications of memristor-based systems.
