Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Researchers describe the first observation of a native ferroelectric metal: a native metal with bistable and electrically switchable spontaneous polarization states -- the hallmark of ferroelectricity.
Such type of equation arises frequently in the mathematical modelling of various practical phenomena, for example, in the modelling of the human pupil-light reflex [26], model of HIV infection [10,33], the study of bistable devices in digital electronics [11], variational problem in control theory [17, 18], first exist time problems in modelling of activation of neuronal variability [37], immune response [30], evolutionary biology [32], dynamics of networks of two identical amplifiers [9], mathematical ecology [19], population dynamics [20] and in a variety of models for physiological process [27,28,29].
(5) A bistable system can become stable anywhere, but it may require much practice to achieve stability in the mixed configuration, particularly for people who have been habilitated in one of the anchor registrations.

Bistable approximation and coherence vector simulation are measured as two distinct simulation tools.
However, producing obvious optical nonlinearities effect requires high incident power owing to low nonlinear refractive index of traditional nonlinear materials; thus optical bistable device with longer size and larger incident light intensity is required to generate optical nonlinearities effect.
