Abstract
This paper proposed a novel fractionalorder memristorbased chaotic circuit. A memristive diode bridge cascaded with a fractionalorder RL filter constitutes the generalized fractionalorder memristor. The mathematical model of the proposed fractionalorder chaotic circuit is established by extending the nonlinear capacitor and inductor in the memristive chaotic circuit to the fractional order. Detailed theoretical analysis and numerical simulations are carried out on the dynamic behavior of the proposed circuit by investigating the stability of equilibrium points and the influence of circuit parameters on bifurcations. The results show that the order of the fractionalorder circuit has a great influence on the dynamical behavior of the system. The system may exhibit complicated nonlinear dynamic behavior such as bifurcation and chaos with the change of the order. The equivalent circuits of the fractionalorder inductor and capacitor are also given in the paper, and the parameters of the equivalent circuits are solved by an undetermined coefficient method. Circuit simulations of the equivalent fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit are carried out in order to validate the correctness of numerical simulations and the practicability of using the integerorder equivalent circuit to substitute the fractionalorder element.
1. Introduction
Since memristor was first postulated by Leon O. Chua in 1971 [1], the research on it has been a hot topic in research. Memristor is a nonlinear passive twoterminal component and represents the relationship between a charge and flux [2]. As the fourth fundamental circuit element besides the resistor, inductor, and capacitor, memristor has many unique features that other elements do not have. It can remember its history resistance so be known as a contraction of “memory resistor.” The resistance of memristor depends on the magnitude, direction, and duration of the voltage applied to it [3]. In recent years, memristor has been widely used in many fields such as resistive random access memory (RRAM) [4, 5], neural networks [6–8], signal processing [9], chaotic and control systems [10], and sample recognition [7, 11].
The fingerprint of the memristor is that the loci in the voltagecurrent plane exhibit a pinched hysteresis loop which always passes through the origin when driven by any periodic input voltage source or current source [12]. Based on the above statement, a class of diode bridge circuits can be described as generalized memristors because they have been proved to satisfy the fingerprint of a memristor [13–19]. It is proved that an elementary electronic circuit consisting of a fullwave rectifier and a secondorder RLC filter has memory properties [13]. Removing the resistor, another diode bridge circuit cascaded with a secondorder filter containing an inductor and a capacitor can also constitute a generalized memristor [14]. Replacing the secondorder filter with a firstorder parallel RC filter or a series firstorder RL filter, a newly generalized memristor is realized, which reduces to a nonlinear fundamental element [15–17]. Recently, an improved memristive diode bridge circuit was put forward comprising four diodes and an inductor, which has a much simpler circuit realization [18, 19].
Due to the nonlinear characteristics of the memristor, chaotic oscillations can easily emerge. Replacing the Chua’s diode in the canonical Chua’s oscillator with a memristor, a memristorbased chaotic circuit was implemented in 2008 [20], which is known as the first combination of memristor and chaotic circuit. Since then, the study of memristor chaotic circuits has been widely undertaken [21–27]. A simple memristor chaotic circuit is proposed in paper [23], in which the inductor and capacitors are connected in series and one capacitor cascaded with a memristor. In paper [24], a memristor, an inductor, a capacitor, and a linear negative resistor constitute a chaotic circuit, and paper [25] puts forward a simplest chaotic circuit which has only three circuit elements: a linear passive inductor, a linear passive capacitor, and a nonlinear active memristor.
On the other hand, fractional calculus, a more than 300yearold mathematical subject, can describe a real object more accurately than the classical “integer” methods [28]. In addition, due to the introduction of extra adjustable parameters, the fractionalorder model will increase the degree of freedom. What is worth mentioning is that the principle of fractional calculus is based on the memory property of the fractionalorder integral or derivative [29], so the connection between fractional calculus and memristor is straightforward, the memristor can be extended to fractional order as well. In paper [30], a fractionalorder memristor model was applied to the Chua’s oscillator for the first time, which constructed a fractionalorder memristorbased chaotic circuit. Paper [31] proposed a fractionalorder generalized memristor which consists of four diodes cascaded with a fractionalorder parallel RC filter (the order is between 0 and 1) and established a fractionalorder chaotic circuit by replacing the traditional Chua’s diode with the proposed memristor. The fractionalorder capacitor and inductor are implemented by the corresponding unit circuits. Not only numerical simulations were carried out but also equivalent circuits were realized in the paper.
This paper is organized as follows. Section 2 briefly introduces the fundamental of fractional calculus and constructs a generalized memristor based on a fractionalorder series RL filter and then establishes a fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit. In Section 3, detailed theoretical analysis and numerical simulations are carried out on the dynamic behavior of the proposed circuit by investigating the stability of equilibrium points and the influence of system parameters on bifurcations. In Section 4, the equivalent circuits of fractionalorder inductor and capacitor are implemented, and circuit simulations of the realized fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit are carried out. Section 5 concludes this article with some additional remarks.
2. FractionalOrder Memristive Chaotic Circuit
2.1. Fundamentals of Fractional Calculus
Fractional calculus, as a generalization of integration and differentiation to integer order, can more accurately characterize the properties of actual objects. The fundamental integraldifferential operator is defined as [32, 33] where and are the bounds of the operation and is the order.
There are three equivalent definitions used for the general fractional differentiation known as the GrünwaldLetnikov (GL) definition, the RiemannLiouville (RL) definition, and the Caputo definition. The Caputo definition is more convenient for initial condition problems because its physical meaning is clear [34–36]. In this work, we will use the differential conformal transformation based on Caputo’s derivatives. The Caputo definition can be written as where is the gamma function and is usually greater than zero [29]. The main advantage of Caputo’s approach is that the initial conditions for fractional differential equations with Caputo derivatives are in the same form as for integerorder differential equations, and the Laplace transform of the Caputo derivative allows utilization of initial values of classical integerorder derivatives with known physical interpretations [33]. The Laplace transform of the order Caputo differential operator is where is an integer and . In this paper, we consider the zero initial conditions, so Laplace transform of Caputo’s fractional derivative reduces to [37]
In this case, the three wellknown definitions of fractional derivatives are equivalent [38].
2.2. FractionalOrder Memristor Model
Paper [17] has demonstrated that a diode bridge circuit cascaded with an inductor and resistor in series satisfied the definition of a generalized memristor, whose equivalent circuit only contains six fundamental elements, which is depicted in Figure 1. Assuming the voltage across the generalized memristor is , the current flowing through the generalized memristor is , and the current passing through the inductor is , the mathematical model of the proposed generalized memristor circuit is established as where and are diode parameters and . , , and indicate the reverse saturation current, emission coefficient, and the thermal voltage of the diode, respectively. In this paper, diodes 1N4148 are used for circuit simulations, and parameters of the diodes are presented as nA, , and mV.

As nonlinear elements, inductors and capacitors can be extended to fractional order from the point of view of fractional calculus [29]. As a result, a fractionalorder inductorbased generalized memristive circuit is realized by replacing the integerorder inductor with a fractionalorder inductor and whose mathematical model can be expressed as
In order to verify whether the proposed fractionalorder generalized memristor satisfied the three fingerprints of a memristor [39], numerical simulations are carried out using MATLAB software. The input voltage is given as a sinusoidal voltage , and the parameters of the inductor and the resistor are 280 mH and 580 Ω, respectively. Setting the fractional order equals 0.95, the relationship curves of the memristor input voltage and input current versus different frequencies are indicated in Figure 2(a), and the relationship curves with different amplitudes are demonstrated in Figure 2(b). The amplitude of input voltage in Figure 2(a) is set as V, and the frequency of input voltage is Hz in Figure 2(b). Moreover, the hysteresis loops with different orders are shown in Figure 2(c), in which theamplitude and frequency are set as V and Hz, respectively. It can be seen that the hysteresis loops pinched at the origin and the area of the pinched hysteresis loops decrease monotonically as the input voltage frequency increase when the frequency is greater than the critical value. Besides, the pinched hysteresis loop will shrink to a nonlinear singlevalued function when the frequency tends to infinity. The areas of pinched hysteresis loops increase as the input voltage amplitude increase as well, as depicted in Figure 2(b). In addition, the pinched hysteresis loops indicated in Figure 2(c) demonstrate that the order of the fractionalorder inductor can affect the dynamic characteristics of the memristor. It can be seen that the pinched hysteresis loops with different amplitudes are similar to each other (see Figure 2(b)), but the frequency and the order can bring about an important impact on the memristive characteristics (see Figures 2(a) and 2(c)).

2.3. FractionalOrder MemristorBased Chaotic Circuit
After the realization of the fractionalorder generalized memristor, we consider applying the proposed firstorder generalized memristor to a classical Chua’s circuit. By replacing the traditional Chua’s oscillator with a fractionalorder inductorbased memristor, a fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit is established, which is indicated in Figure 3. Since the practical inductor and capacitor can be extended to fractional order to better express its electricity characteristics, the capacitance and inductance used in this paper are all fractional order. Therefore, the circuit is composed of six elements which are a fractionalorder inductor , two fractionalorder capacitors and , a fractionalorder memristor , a linear passive resistor, and a negative conductance. Because the proposed fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit has four dynamic elements, there are four corresponding state variables, which are the voltages across the fractionalorder capacitors and and , the current flowing through the fractionalorder inductor . The last one is the current passing through the fractionalorder inductor in the fractionalorder generalized memristor, , as shown in (6), which can express the dynamic characteristics of the fractionalorder generalized memristor . Utilizing Kirchhoff voltage law (KVL) and Kirchhoff current law (KCL), the characteristic equation of the fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit can be derived as
The model of the fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit is established in MATLAB, and simulations are carried out in numerical. Set capacitance nF, capacitance nF, inductance mH, resistance kΩ, and conductance mS, and the parameters of the fractionalorder generalized memristor are the same as that mentioned above. When the fractional order is taken as 0.98 and the initial values of the state variables are selected as V, V, A, and A, the phase diagrams of the fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit are exhibited in Figure 4.

3. Chaotic Dynamic Behavior of the FractionalOrder Memristive Chua’s Circuit
3.1. Equilibrium Points and Stability
In this section, equilibrium points and eigenvalues of the corresponding Jacobian matrix are calculated to qualitatively analyze the dynamic behavior of the proposed fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit. The equilibrium points of such a circuit can be obtained by solving the following equations:
Obviously, is one equilibrium point of the fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit, but the analytic solutions of and cannot be computed in MATLAB, so we consider using the graphic analytic method to obtain the other equilibrium points [16]. The relationship between and can be written as
Utilizing (9), we can draw two functions between and ; then the intersection coordinates of two functions can easily be obtained, as shown in Figure 5. Thus, the other two equilibrium points are obtained as and .
The Jacobian matrix of the characteristic (7) can be described as where and can be expressed as
Then the eigenvalues at equilibrium points can be calculated as
It can be seen that equilibrium point has a positive real root and equilibrium point have two complex conjugate roots with the positive real part. As a result, the system is unstable and has chaotic attractors.
3.2. Bifurcation with the Changing of Order
The fractionalorder models can increase the flexibility and degrees of freedom by means of the fractional parameters. In this section, the change of the fractional order is applied in the fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit, and the influence of the order on the performance of the fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit is discussed. Taking the same circuit parameters as mentioned above and the initial conditions are set as (0 V, 0.01 V, 0 A, 0 A), the bifurcation diagram of the fractionalorder chaotic circuit described in (7) can be obtained, as depicted in Figure 6. It shows that the dynamical behaviors of the system can be divided into three states: periodic state, bifurcation, and chaos. The system has two blocks of chaos around and when the order varies from 0.9 to 1. With the increase of the order, the system enters into the chaotic state from the periodic state abruptly when . However, the chaotic behavior does not exist for a long time; the system runs back to the periodic state when order is just over 0.94. When the order is higher than 0.97, the system enters into chaos once more. Furthermore, the system displays complicated nonlinear dynamic behavior such as bifurcation and chaos when order is greater than 0.96. In order to further illustrate the influence of the order on the dynamic behaviors of the system, a comparative analysis is carried out. The phase diagrams of the fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit when order equals to 0.955 and 0.965 are indicated in Figure 7. It can be seen that the circuit is a single cycle when , but when , the circuit has two or more cycles, bifurcation occurs, which corresponds well with the results in the bifurcation diagram as shown in Figure 6. In addition, it is worth noting that the orbits of state variable with order do not change smoothly with order , which is different from most of other bifurcation diagrams. From the above analysis, we know that different orders will cause different dynamical behaviors of the memristive chaotic circuit, such as bifurcation and chaos, which indicates that the order plays a significant role in the performance of the fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit.

3.3. Bifurcation with the Changing of Inductor
The bifurcation diagram of with inductor is depicted in Figure 8.
The orbits painted in red indicate the integerorder system with order , and the orbits painted in blue express the fractionalorder system whose order . For the integerorder system, as the increase of inductor value, the orbits of the memristive Chua’s circuit start from the periodic state and then enter into chaos abruptly. After increasing for a period of time, the system returns back to periodic behavior. The phenomenon is not the same as that in the fractionalorder system. The inductance value required for the fractionalorder system to enter into chaotic behavior is larger than that of the integerorder system. Moreover, the fractionalorder system is still in chaos when the inductance is greater than 33 mH, but the orbits are in a periodic state for the integerorder systems. In order to verify whether the theoretical analysis of the bifurcation diagram is correct, the phase diagrams of the integerorder system and fractionalorder system with order are given in Figure 9 when inductance mH and mH, respectively. It can be seen that the results of the phase diagrams well demonstrate the correctness of the bifurcation diagram. The integerorder system is chaotic but the fractionalorder system is periodic when inductance value mH. Meanwhile, the integerorder system has a periodic behavior but the fractionalorder system has a chaotic behavior when inductance value mH.

4. Circuit Realization of the FractionalOrder Memristive Chaotic Circuit
In this section, equivalent circuits are used to simulate the fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit. Since the inductor and capacitor can be extended to fractional order, the Oustaloup filter algorithm is used to obtain the approximate transfer function of fractional Laplace transform operator [40], then simplifying the transfer functions into zeropole forms and using chain circuits to realize the equivalent circuit of fractionalorder inductor and capacitor [41].
4.1. Equivalent Circuit of FractionalOrder Generalized Memristor
The fractional Laplace transform operator of inductor in fractionalorder generalized memristor can be physically realized using the RL chain circuits in Figure 10. The transfer function of the fractionalorder inductor can be approximately expressed as where is the order of the fractionalorder inductor. Selecting mH, and , resistance and inductance can be calculated by the method of undetermined coefficients. The parameters of the equivalent chain circuit of fractionalorder inductor are listed in Tables 1 and 2. The magnitude and phase of the ideal and 7th order Oustaloup approximation and fractance circuit approximation with mH and order are presented in Figure 11. From the figure, we observe that the approximation is relatively good from 10^{−1} Hz to 10^{5} Hz.

4.2. Equivalent Circuit of FractionalOrder Memristive Chua’s Circuit
After realizing the equivalent circuit of fractionalorder inductor, we consider using the same method to achieve the equivalent circuit of the fractionalorder capacitor. The approximate equivalence of the fractionalorder capacitor can be actualized utilizing RC ladder topologies, as shown in Figure 12. The transfer function of the RC ladder network is expressed as
In consideration of capacitors nF and nF in the fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit, choosing and , resistance and capacitance can be calculated as well, as listed in Tables 3 and 4. The bode diagram of the ideal and 7th order Oustaloup approximation and fractance circuit approximation with nF and 100 nF and order is indicated in Figure 13. It can be seen that the approximation is pretty good from 10^{−2} Hz to 10^{5} Hz. The chain equivalent parameters of fractionalorder inductor in the fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit can be calculated as well, as listed in Tables 5 and 6, and the bode diagram shows a good approximation from 10^{−2} Hz to 10^{5} Hz, as shown in Figure 14. Thus, the equivalent circuit of the fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit has been completed as shown in Figure 15, which has four equivalent circuit units, and then the circuit simulation can be carried out on the fractionalorder memristive equivalent circuit.

4.3. Circuit Simulations of the FractionalOrder Memristive Equivalent Circuit
In this section, we consider utilizing PSpice to simulate the fractionalorder memristive equivalent circuit. Considering order , the parameters of resistance and diodes in fractionalorder generalized memristor are the same as mentioned above, and fractionalorder inductor mH is realized by a chain unit, whose equivalent parameters are listed in Tables 1 and 2. In addition, resistance and negative conductance in the fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit are constant, while fractionalorder capacitance nF and nF and fractionalorder inductance mH are implemented by corresponding equivalent circuits, whose parameters are given in Tables 3–6. Thus, an equivalent circuit of the fractionalorder memristorbased fractionalorder Chua’s circuit is achieved. Figure 16 shows the phase diagrams of the realized fractionalorder memristive Chua’s circuit by PSpice, and the results well verify the correctness of numerical simulations and the practicability of the fractionalorder equivalent circuit.

5. Conclusions
In this paper, a fractionalorder memristorbased chaotic circuit is presented. The inductor in generalized memristor and the capacitors and inductors in the memristive chaotic circuit are all fractional order. Firstly, the mathematical model of fractionalorder inductorbased generalized memristor is established, and then the characteristic equations of the fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit are derived. After that, theoretical analysis and numerical simulations are carried out such as the analysis of equilibrium point and stability and the influence of the order on the stability of the system. The results show that the fractionalorder circuit exhibits different dynamic behaviors such as bifurcation and chaos with the change of the order, which indicates the importance of order effects on the dynamic behaviors of the system. In order to verify the aforementioned analysis, the equivalent circuit of the fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit is presented. The nonlinear elements inductor and capacitor are approximately equivalent through a unit circuit. Using the method of undetermined coefficients to solve circuit parameters, a fractionalorder memristorbased equivalent circuit is constructed in PSpice. The results of circuit simulations well confirm the investigation on the fractionalorder memristive chaotic circuit both in theoretical and numerical.
