Slow–Fast Dynamics in a Chaotic System with Strongly Asymmetric Memristive Element

The paper describes the effect of a memristive element on the dynamics of a chaotic system theoretically as well as experimentally. For this purpose, the chaotic Chua’s oscillator is extended by a memory element in the form of a double-barrier memristive device. Strong changes in the dynamics of chaotic oscillations can be observed. Numerical simulations and analysis of the extended model reveal that the underlying dynamics possesses slow–fast properties due to different timescales between the memory element and the base system. Furthermore, the stabilizing and destabilizing dynamic bifurcations are identified that are traversed by the system during its chaotic behavior.
