This paper presents the introduction of memristors. Memristors were first hypothesized by Chua in 1971. Memristors, or memristive devices, are nonvolatile circuit components that have a nonlinear relationship between electric charge and magnetic flux. These devices were hypothesized as the missing fourth circuit element, joining the long-standing resistor, inductor, and capacitor. This text presents prior work in this field, the proposed arithmetic designs, and results and suggestions for future work.
