    In this paper, we propose a novel locally-active memristor based on a voltage-controlled generic memristor model and use the analysis methods of standard nonlinear theory to analyze its characteristics and illustrate the concept of local activity via the DC v-i loci of memristor and non-volatile memory via the Power-Off Plot of memristor. A chaotic attractor is observed with a simple nonlinear circuit that only includes three circuit elements in parallel: a nonlinear locally-active memristor, a linear passive inductor and a linear passive capacitor. Then, we analyze the dynamical characteristics of the above circuit and show complex bifurcation behaviors.
