Synthesis of Memristive Systems

D. Biolek, V. Biolkova, Z. Kolka, J. Vavra


A method of the synthesis of memristive systems with prescribed pinched hysteresis loops is described. Since the loop has a connection to the Fourier components of the system response to sinusoidal excitation, the method can be used for designing nonlinear applications of memristive systems that work on the principle of spectrum enrichment.
