## Fractional Circuit Elements: Memristors, Memcapacitors, Meminductors and Beyond

**Authors:** Xiong Wang

Memristor was postulated by Chua in 1971 by analyzing mathematical relations
between pairs of fundamental circuit variables and realized by HP laboratory in 2008. This
relation can be generalized to include any class of two-terminal devices whose properties
depend on the state and history of the system. These are called memristive systems, including
current-voltage for the memristor, charge-voltage for the memcapacitor, and current-flux for the
meminductor. This paper further enlarge the family of elementary circuit elements, in order to
model many irregular and exotic nondifferentiable phenomena which are common and dominant
to the nonlinear dynamics of many biological, molecular and nanodevices.
