EPJ Plus Focus Point Issue: Memristive Chaotic Circuits and Systems

With the discovery of memristor and the development of chaos theory, memristive chaotic circuits and systems which combine the advantages of chaos and memristor have begun to be widely discussed and have been an important research issue in recent years. Inspired by the unique nonlinearity and memory function of memristor, memristive chaotic circuits and systems exhibit more complex and diverse dynamic properties which can provide more possibilities for improving the performance of secure communication and image encryption, establish reliable support for understanding and designing memristive system with strong plasticity, and expand the practical applications of chaos and memristor.

Many scholars have gone deep into the research of memristive chaotic circuits and systems, and have obtained some significant and innovative research results. However the current understanding of memristive chaotic circuits and systems is still not comprehensive enough. Many of their mysterious dynamic behaviors and their formation mechanisms still inconclusive. The existing research results of memristive chaotic circuits and systems are also difficult to support engineering applications, and its unified modeling, analysis and application framework has not yet been formed. Thus it is necessary to organize related topics on memristive chaotic circuits and systems for promoting the research of chaotic circuits and systems and encouraging more research progress. Some new methods and techniques of the research of memristive chaotic circuits and systems are expect to be discovered.

This Special Issue aims to solicit high-quality original papers which focus on the advanced achievements on the theory and application research of memristive chaotic circuits and systems. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Modeling and analysis of memristive chaotic systems
  • Memristive chaotic neuron and neural network circuits
  • Advanced control techniques of memristive chaotic systems
  • Circuit design and realization of memristive chaotic systems
  • Engineering application of memristive chaotic circuits and systems

Authors are invited to submit their original research and short reviews on the theme of this special issue. Manuscripts should be prepared following the instructions for authors using the latex template of EPJ Plus, which can be downloaded here. Articles should be submitted to the Editorial Office of EPJ Plus via the submission system at http://www.editorialmanager.com/epjp by replying "yes" to the question 'Are you submitting this manuscript following an invitation to contribute to a "focus point" (topical article collection by invitation of guest editors)?' and then selecting “FP: Memristive Chaotic Circuits and Systems".

Submission Deadline: February 20, 2022.
