Flux-Charge Analysis Method of Memristor Circuits

  • Fernando Corinto

Let us consider a relevant class of nonlinear networks, denoted by \(\mathcal {L}\mathcal {M}\), containing at least one memristor in addition to ideal (linear) resistors, inductors, capacitors, and independent voltage or currents sources. Thus, \(\mathcal {L}\mathcal {M}\) describes nonlinear dynamic networks including ideal memristors.
