Abstract:
Memristor (concatenation of MEMory ResISTOR), is the fourth fundamental circuit element (joining the resistor, the capacitor and the inductor), predicted by Leon Chua in 1971. This element represents one of today’s latest technological achievements with a great number of applications. Memristor is a passive two-terminal electronic device which behaviour is described by a nonlinear constitutive relation between the voltage drop at its terminal and the current flowing through the device. But the reason why the memristor is substantially different from the other fundamental circuit elements is that, when the applied voltage is turned off, it still remembers how much voltage was applied before and for how long; thus presenting memory of its past. However, this innovative device attracted most of attention worldwide only after 2008 when its practical implementation was announced by Hewlett-Packard, originating intense research activity ever since. Memristors have brought a revolution in various scientific fields, as many phenomena in systems, such as in thermistors, spintronic devices and molecules could be explained now with the use of the memristor. Also, electronic circuits with memory elements could simulate processes typical of biological systems, such as learning and associative memory and the adaptive behavior of unicellular organisms. Furthermore, neuromorphic computing circuits with memristors, can potentially solve problems that are cumbersome or outright intractable by digital computation. Also, memristors have been used in cellular neural networks, for performing a number of applications, such as logical operations, image processing operations, complex behavior and higher brain functions, or in designing stateful Boolean logic gates for the AND, OR and NOT operations. Also, in many well-known nonlinear circuits, the nonlinear element has been replaced by memristors and various interesting dynamical phenomena like chaos and hidden attractors have been observed. Therefore, with these wide range of applications, engineering aspects of memristor devices, memristive-based circuits and systems design become significant important.

Objectives of the Book:
This volume presents a selected collection of contributions on a focused treatment of recent advances in the design and realization of this new circuit element, as well as on the study of phenomena that the memristive-based circuits and systems. The book also discusses several multi-disciplinary applications of memristors and memristive devices and systems in electronics, computing, computer architectures, neuromorphic engineering, etc. These are among those multi-disciplinary applications where Computational Intelligence has excellent potentials for use. Both novice and expert readers should find this book a useful reference in the aforementioned fields.
