@article{DiVentra2013OnTP, title={On the physical properties of memristive, memcapacitive and meminductive systems.}, author={Massimiliano Di Ventra and Yuriy V. Pershin}, journal={Nanotechnology}, year={2013}, volume={24 25}, pages={ 255201 } }

We discuss the physical properties of realistic memristive, memcapacitive and meminductive systems. In particular, by employing the well-known theory of response functions and microscopic derivations, we show that resistors, capacitors and inductors with memory emerge naturally in the response of systems-especially those of nanoscale dimensions-subjected to external perturbations. As a consequence, since memristances, memcapacitances and meminductances are simply response functions, they are… Expand
