Circuit Theory and Signal Processing

Nonlinear circuits and chaotic systems
Real-world circuits and systems are ubiquitous and are generally studied through linearization. Linearized versions provide local characterizations of nonlinear systems and are unable to capture their global behavior such as onset of chaotic (non-repeating, yet deterministic) oscillations. A research branch in nonlinear circuit theory strives to study nonlinear systems by means of tools from manifold calculus. Manifold calculus allows one to characterize and to simulate numerically the behavior of nonlinear systems evolving on nonlinear state spaces, such as, to mention one, an onboard DC-DC energy converter realized as a CLC circuit.
