What is nonlinear circuit?

A nonlinear component is one in which the current is not  proportional to the voltage, in other words it does not follow  Ohm's law.    The commonest nonlinear compon (MORE)

What is a nonlinear function?

it's linear if for any x,y,k values: f(k*x + (1-k)*y) = k*f(x) + (1-k)*f(y) or, an equivalent condition: it's linear if for any k value: f(k) = k*f(1) + (1-k)*f(0) = f(0) (MORE)
