# The Discrete Preisach Model of Hysteresis

The Discrete Preisach Model of Hysteresis

The left graphic shows the upper-left half of an matrix of hysterons. A hysteron is a nonideal relay or Schmitt trigger, with two states: {off, 0, yellow} or {on, 1, red}.

n×n

Change the value with its slider. On the left you see how the hysterons are switched on or off as you increase or decrease . The right graphic shows the corresponding hysteresis curve. At a given point , the value is the proportion of switched-on hysterons. This value depends on the history of . The curve stores the history of the last 300 points and the red point is the current point.
