Original Paper


This paper presents an inductor-free memristive circuit, which is implemented by linearly coupling an active band-pass filter (BPF) with a parallel memristor and capacitor filter. Mathematical model is established, and numerical simulations are performed. The results verified by hardware experiments show that the active BPF-based memristive circuit exhibits the dynamical behaviors of point, period, chaos, and period-doubling bifurcation route. Most important of all, the newly proposed memristive circuit has a line equilibrium and its stability closely relies on memristor initial condition, which results in the emergence of extreme multistability. Stability distribution related to memristor initial condition is numerically estimated and the coexistence of infinitely many attractors is intuitively captured by numerical simulations and PSIM circuit simulations.
