This chapter reviews the memcapacitor, mathematical representations of time-invariant, physical realizations, and mathematical models. Moreover, the nonlinear boundary effect of the memcapacitor under step, sinusoidal, and general periodic excitation responses are discussed with analytical, numerical, and circuit simulations for different examples. The general analyses of series and parallel connections of memcapacitors are introduced with many examples and circuit simulations. Finally a charge-controlled, memristor-less memcapacitor is introduced and validated through different cases. © 2015, Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
