In 1971 a “missing memristor” was proposed by a circuit theorist named Leon Chua as a 4th fundamental passive circuit element defined by a non-linear relationship between electric charge and magnetic flux linkage. In 2008 a research group from Hewlett-Packard led by Stan Williams claimed credit for finding this “missing memristor” based on the observation of a zero-crossing hysteresis effect. I recently proved that the zero-crossing hysteresis effect can be produced by dynamic systems other than the memristor or more generalized memristive systems. In light of this development I address several public comments made by Stan Williams regarding the history of the memristor.
